Migration and Transnationalism


The Migration and Transnationalism Working Group fosters a dialogue between the social sciences and the humanities on the cultural, social, economic, and political effects of migration. Migration is unavoidably linked to the encompassing phenomenon of economic globalization, and yet migration does not constitute the only outcome, nor are all things transnational driven by economics. It is necessary to integrate diverse disciplinary perspectives to any discussion of transnationalism, as proposed by this Working Group. Our goal is to advance interdisciplinary scholarship on the impact of transnationalism throughout the Americas.
