Publication | Workshop papers selected for special issue of Gender, Place and Culture

Research presented in a summer 2014 workshop series co-hosted by YCAR will be published as a special issue in the journal Gender, Place and Culture.

The Emotion of Migration was a two-part workshop series investigating the transnational affect and the emotions of migration within and throughout Asia. It was organized by Kabita Chakraborty (Children’s Studies, York University), Janarthani Arumugam (Gender Studies, University of Malaya) and Shanthi Thambiah (Gender Studies, University of Malaya).

Papers from the first workshop comprise the GPC special issue. This workshop was hosted by the Gender Studies Programme at the University of Malaya in early August 2014. It focused on women’s experiences of migrating for work across South and Southeast Asia.

Presenters in the second workshop shared research on the experiences of children and youth migrating for work and schooling, and took place at YCAR in late August. Papers presented at this YCAR-hosted workshop are currently being reviewed for the journal Children’s Geographies.
