Immigration History Research Center Presents

Migration across Global Regimes of Childhood Symposium

9/21/18, 9:00 AM

About this event

This one-day symposium explores the history and contemporary politics of child migration, as well as the fundamental discourses of governances – the global “regimes of childhood” – that have worked to regulate the movement of children, across time and space. This symposium brings migration studies into dialogue with childhood and youth studies to reconsider, and interrogate, how the “politics of intimacy” so often associated with children and child mobility have intersected with geopolitical designs and the consolidation of nation-states, from a trans-epochal perspective.

This Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) event is funded in part by the Imagine Fund Special Events Award from the University of Minnesota Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and an Outreach Grant from the Society for the History of Children and Youth, and co-sponsored by the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD); Asian American Studies Program; Human Rights Program; Center for Austrian Studies (CAS); Center for German and European Studies (CGES); Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change (ICGC); Institute for Global Studies; Departments of American Indian Studies; Anthropology; Chicano & Latino Studies; English; Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies (GWSS); German, Nordic, Slavic & Dutch (GNSD); and History; Subjects, Object, Agents: Young People’s Lives in the Global South (YaSOA).
