FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
Conceptualising Social networks and Migration:
Empirical Contributions and Theoretical Challenges
at
MIGRINTER
(International Migrations: Spaces & Societies, Institute CNRS)
Maison des Sciences de l=92Homme et de la Soci=E9t=E9,
University of Poitiers - FRANCE
26-27 May, 2003

The concept of =91social networks=92 represents a myriad of epistemological=
  and
methodological insights evident in its extensive application in migration
studies. =91Social networks=92 is, indeed, a fundamental concept that under=
pins
most approaches to understanding diasporic and transnational connections.
The social network analysis has been one of the most often applied
frameworks in understanding social relations. However, it has often been
criticised as =91a loose federation of approaches=92 as it has been used si=
mply
as a descriptive metaphor or its use has remained ungrounded theoretically.

This workshop invites theoretical contributions and empirical research that
have grounded network analysis in the study of social relations but remain
conscious of the shortcomings of structural-functionalism and
poststructuralism. We invite studies that analyse and describe
predominantly qualitative data on the core elements of migrant networks, on
size, density, multiplexity, strength of ties, intensity, reachability,
durability, frequency, content and know-how in establishment and
mobilisation of migrant networks.

While the economic and political dynamics of migrant networks have been
studied abundantly, there is still little data on connectedness,
consistency and socio-cultural dimensions of everyday social relations
between migrants and between them and host/home societies. For this reason,
qualitative approaches are considered more useful than quantitative ones
but the latter will not be excluded if they contribute further to the main
themes of the workshop.

We would be particularly interested in analysis of understudied cases of
migration networks such as: networks of displaced people and religious
networks (including pilgrimage). Little studied communities of migrants
would be prioritised to cases focusing on extensively studied diasporas or
transnational communities.

The main focus of the workshop will be on how people are connected and not
on the instrumentalisation of networks. We would seek to explore how
networks are being reproduced, socially constructed and altered by their
members.

We would aim to contribute to future network analysis by overcoming its use
as a descriptive tool of social situations and providing, instead, an
in-depth analysis of its specificity as a useful method of collecting data
in migration studies.

Abstracts (250-500 words) will be welcomed by 1 April 2003.
The languages of the workshop will be English and French and abstracts and
papers could be submitted in either language. Papers (4000-8000 words) will
be circulated in advance and have to be submitted before 10 May 2003. Each
participant will be expected to review one other paper by 20 May 2003.

Young researchers are particularly welcome. The conference debates are also
open to practitioners from governmental and non-governmental institutions
working with migrants.

Funding is limited and only a few students from East European or Southern
countries will be considered for partial funding.

Please send abstracts and enquiries by e-mail to the conference organisers:
Dimitrina Mihaylova, ISCA, University of Oxford and MIGRINTER, University
of Poitiers
