“In Search of the Migrant Child” Workshop 1

‘Extra’-Ordinary Sources of Child Migrants’ Past Lives

The topic of child migration occupies a critical role in contemporary debates about global mobilities, forced migration and the intensification of ethno-nationalist xenophobia. This first workshop on “‘Extra’-Ordinary Sources of Child Migrants’ Past Lives” in a workshop series aims to amplify the historical dimensions of this phenomenon, bringing together a group of historians whose scholarship examines the nexus of childhood and migration from various perspectives and in different historical contexts. Adopting a transnational lens, the workshop opens a discussion that explores child and youth migration as a multifaceted phenomenon that is central to the historical analyses of migration more broadly.
