CfP – Sea Crossings: The Global Migrant/Refugee Crisis

The Northeast Modern Association meeting (neMLA) in Baltimore, MD in March 2017 is hosting a panel entitled “Sea Crossings: The Global Migrant/Refugee Crisis.”

This panel considers the centrality of the of the sea in the contemporary global migrant/refugee crisis. We invite papers that explore the complexities of the current crisis by addressing issues such as global capitalism, national and religious persecution, and , sexual trafficking, precarious , and migratory law.  Papers may address current and historical crossings, and they may consider various bodies of water, such as the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Caribbean Sea, etc.  Papers that take a cross-disciplinary or approach are welcome.

Abstracts are due on September 30, 2017.  To submit an abstract, please visit the NeMLA site.
