International Conference: Transforming Mobility and Immobility: Brexit and
Beyond
28-29 March 2019, Sheffield, UK

This conference is organised by the Migration Research Group (MRG) at the
University of Sheffield in collaboration with the Centre of Migration
Research (CMR) at the University of Warsaw. Supported by IMISCOE and by the
Noble Foundation’s Programme on Modern Poland.

Confirmed speakers include:

Professor Nira Yuval Davis, University of East London
Professor Bryan Turner, Australian Catholic University and Potsdam
University
Professor Feargal Cochrane, University of Kent
Professor Pawel Kaczmarczyk, University of Warsaw
Dr Majella Kilkey, University of Sheffield
Professor Louise Ryan, University of Sheffield
Professor Peter Scholten, Erasmus University Rotterdam
Professor Anna Triandafyllidou, European University Institute
Catherine Woollard, European Council on Refugees and Exiles

At the very moment the UK plans to exit the EU, we invite migration scholars
to come together to discuss how Brexit cannot be understood in isolation,
but must be seen in relation to a geographic, temporal and conceptual
‘beyond’. We will collaborate to develop understanding of how on-going
events in Europe and worldwide are transforming regimes, patterns and
understandings of mobility and immobility.

In the 15 years since the 2004 Enlargement, at local and national scales,
European countries have experienced seismic shifts associated with
increasing intra-EU mobility, the economic crisis, austerity, the so-called
‘refugee crisis’, the rise of far-right and other populist sentiments.
Brexit is clearly a notable political landmark in the UK’s more generalised
‘hostile environment’, but globally it sits alongside other significant
events such as Trump’s ‘raising the border’ rhetoric in the USA to the
forced displacement of the Rohingya from Myanmar.

Following Castles (2010: 1576), we understand these shifts as bound up in
broader processes of social transformation in which ‘existing social
patterns are questioned and many are reconfigured’. A social transformation
lens on migration, invites us, therefore, to interrogate what is changing in
the politics, policies and practices of mobility and immobility, and what
this means for our existing theoretical and conceptual frameworks.

We welcome paper proposals from various disciplines, theoretical and
empirical oriented, case-studies and comparative and with relevance to the
UK, Europe and beyond on the following themes:

●      Shifting mobility and migration policy regimes
●      Ordering and re-ordering of (im)mobile subjects in shifting regimes:
gendered, classed and racialised implications
●      Rescaling borders and everyday bordering
●      Bottom-up strategies of individuals and groups to negotiate and
resist borders
●      Social transformation through migration: countries of origin and
countries of living perspectives
●      New and emerging patterns of migration and mobility
●      Multicultures in place and understandings of integration in local
contexts
●      Understanding and responding to the politicisation of borders and
migration

Important information:

Day 1 of the conference is dedicated to doctoral research. PhD students will
be given the opportunity to showcase their research, ‘work in progress’
and emerging research findings.

The Conference Opening Plenary and a wine reception will take place on the
evening of Day 1 for all conference participants. Day 2 of the conference
will include paper presentations from post-doctoral level researchers /
academics and further plenary sessions.

Submission of paper proposals should include a 250-word abstract. The
deadline for submitting paper proposals is 10th October 2018.

Applicants will be notified about the acceptance of their paper proposals by
mid-November 2018, at which point the conference registration system will
open.

Please consult the conference webpage for more details and information on
how to submit:
