disClosure: a journal of social theory
Issue 17: Migration, Displacement, and Mobility

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: April 20, 2007

Migration, Displacement, and Mobility, whether global or local, are making
their effects felt as population shifts force governments, businesses, and
citizens to adapt to the changing imperatives causing and wrought by the
movement of humans. With the rise of migrant labor populations, the
displacement of native populations, and ready access to cheap and fast
transportation, humans are moving, relocating, and vacationing around the
globe. Entailing every form of human phenomena, scholars from a broad range
of disciplines have fruitfully engaged these issues. From these various
efforts, at least one fact is clear: there remains much work to be done. To
that end, we dedicate this issue of disClosure to questions like "how do we
describe migration, displacement, and mobility," "where do we find it,"
"what are the implications of these phenomena," and "what complicates our
analyses?"

The editorial collective of disClosure seeks submissions that explore issues
of migration, displacement, and mobility as it is understood in a variety of
