The conference will be hosted at the University of Amsterdam and several local cultural institutions.
This edited collection will contain critical, interdisciplinary essays addressing the complexity of multicultural identity-making, politics and practices in relation to transnational and transracial adoption.

We encourage essays that focus on adoption issues in places with highly contested to under-explored approaches to multiculturalism—including Europe, the Americas and the Pacific.
