Call for papers – Labour migration in the Asia-Pacific: race, history and heritage (14-15 February 2013)
14-15 February 2013, College of Arts and Social Sciences, ANU.
In recent times, temporary migrant labour has been on the agenda of many of the countries of the Asia-Pacific, with governments of both sending and receiving countries interested in understanding, controlling and improving labour migration. The history of labour migration in the Asia-Pacific region has been extremely rich and its impact on peoples, places and things profound. Examples include Indian plantation workers in Malaysia and Fiji; Indonesian pearl divers, Afghan cameleers and Chinese gold miners in Australia; and Mexican workers in California’s agriculture sector.
Besides examining questions of race, ethnicity and cultural history, this research symposium aims to examine a wide range of tangible and intangible heritage forms, including monuments, tales, traditions, commemorative events, festivals, artworks, photography, performance art, cinema and literature. Reflecting this, the focus of this event will be inter-disciplinary, comparative and regional in focus. This symposium will provide an innovative opportunity for a broad range of people working in government, cultural institutions and academia to hear from leading experts on this topic which, given the ongoing debate on the national and global politics of labour migration, is becoming increasingly important.
Call for papers: please send 200 word abstracts with title and author biodata to Marshall Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1 November 2012. On a competitive basis, free accommodation and domestic airfares will be offered for one (1) postgraduate or ECR to present a paper. Please indicate if you would like to be considered for this offer.
This event – which will be held 14-15 February 2013 – has received funding support from the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) and ANU’s College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS). You may download an advanced notice flyer for this event.
