Call for papers for an edited volume : West meets East: mobility of people, exchange of knowledge. Female migration in Europe (sixteenth to the twenty-first century)
Deadline : 15th February 2021
Mobility calls for a continuous interaction between individuals, but also between individuals and institutions enforcing a cultural exchange and a societal transformation. The aims of this book are two: 1) to study female migration from Western Europe to Eastern Europe and vice-versa in the long run, from the sixteenth to the twentieth century; 2) to follow the alterations that took place in both spaces through the lens of the influence that the newcomers brought to the local structures.
Gender, ethnicity and class are the factors that shape women’s identities and their integration as individuals in the new socio-economic context. Cultural representations preceded and came along with women in their mobility attracting an initial confrontation between the ‘other’ and the local ‘us’. However, this process also made room for a proactive approach from both sides.
The goal of the book is to highlight the important exchanges of people and knowledge within these two European areas in an historical perspective.
