Call for Papers — Migration temporalities and migrants’ experience of time in rural and remote places

Deadline for abstracts is 9th June 2023

You are warmly invited to submit an abstract for a Special issue focusing on time and temporalities of migration in rural and remote places.

Migration is often understood as a spatial process where time is implicit (Baby-Collin et al., 2017; Griffiths et al., 2013; Mercier et al., 2021). Yet, “the focus on the temporal experience of migrants can illuminate the nature of migration itself, (…), and the way that, in a diversity of ways, it dis-places and re-embeds people and communities around the world” (Cwerner, 2001, p.32). This reflection on migration and time is far from new and it is increasingly explored (King et al. 2004, Cwerner 2001, Griffiths et al. 2013, Mercier 2021, Triandafyllidou 2022). Yet to date, very few scholars have addressed migration and time in rural and remote regions.

This special issue wishes to stimulate a needed reflection on migration temporalities and migrants’ experience of time in rural and remote spaces and places and fill this gap in the literature.

The papers will be submitted in a Special Issue proposal for a peer reviewed international journal by the end of June 2023.
