Young People’s Migration Within and Throughout Asia: Managing Emotions,
Identities and Relationships
Date: 19 August 2014 to 20 August 2014
Venue: York Centre for Asian Research and the Children’ s Studies Program
(Department of Humanities) York University, Toronto Canada
*Call for papers*: Workshop 2 calls for empirical research papers —
historical and contemporary — on children and young people’s
emotional experiences of migration within and throughout Asia.
Papers should focus on mixed feelings of (but not limited to)
elation, loneliness, hope, frustration, confusion, relief, fear,
freedom and disappointment in the migration process.
There is a preference for participant-centred research in
South and Southeast Asia prioritizing the following themes:
1. Migration for work and marriage in a historical context
(especially in plantations and estates)
2. Contemporary experiences of moving for work, marriage and
school — managing mixed feelings
3. Left Behind — adjusting to absence and creating and maintaining
