Studies of World Migrations


Acquiring Editor: James Engelhardt
Series Editors: Marcelo Borges and Madeline Hsu

The importance of intercontinental migrations today alerts the scholarly world to the need for studies of human mobility not only over long distances but also over time. Migrations are the most human manifestations of globalization, yet scholars have often focused on immigration to particular nations in specific periods of time instead of global or long-term perspectives. The purpose of this series is to focus scholarly attention on the research on human migrations being written across scholarly disciplines, and to encourage a more global and long-term perspective on human mobility.
