Migration has been a fact of life throughout the history of mankind.
The 5-day international conference will consider both historical examples and theoretical models of why, how and under which conditions migration processes happen, and of the impact migration has on incoming and welcoming populations groups. Papers covering different periods and/or methodological approaches will be welcome, but a special focus shall lie on historical examples from the Ancient Near East to enable a discussion of specific migration processes, and their reception in the short and long-term in context. A particular aim of the conference will be to foster exchange between scholars active in different fields. To facilitate this, the conference will combine discussion panels with the delivery of traditional papers on four pre-defined topics, namely on: (1) Reasons for Migration; (2) Modes of Migration; (3) Reaction to Migration; (4) Consequences of Migration. The conference will result in a volume of conference proceedings. Paper Length: 20 mins Languages: English, German, Italian, French Submission Deadline: 24.1.2020. As there are limited spaces, please send your paper title and abstract of no more than 250 wds to: email@example.com.
