Short Abstract:

We welcome research presentations on trajectories of multiple displacements and emplacements across political boundaries, be them historical labor-related flows under empires, contemporary displacements related to war, politics, environment, economy, or a combination of any of the above.

Long Abstract:

This panel aims to bring together ethnographic research, anthropological-inspired historical research and conceptual developments addressing trajectories of displacement and emplacement across political boundaries. We encourage participants to present case-studies of multiple displacements -- migrations and re-migrations of laborers across economic and political systems; war or environment refugees; forced and semi-forced labor flows across empires; enslaved, indentured and contract labor situations; etc. We welcome different analytical approaches to the relationship between movement and the production of identities, bodies, racializations, hierarchies and other social experiences.
