FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 28, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- International scholars representing various academic disciplines will convene at Indiana University Bloomington, April 7-8, to consider the relationships between globalization and migration.
Sponsored by the IU Maurer School of Law and its Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies , the symposium, "Globalization and Migration," will highlight forms of displacement not usually considered under the rubric of migration, according to Alfred C. Aman Jr., professor of law and faculty editor of the Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies, which he co-founded.
"The symposium will address migration issues such as deportation, sex trafficking, asylum and adoption, along with novel approaches to law related to migration in these and other areas," Aman said. "We expect that this international and interdisciplinary conference will break substantial new ground, both thematically and theoretically."
Among the distinguished scholars presenting at the symposium are:
Cathryn Costello, Fellow and Tutor in EC and Public Law, Faculty of Law, University of Oxford
Catherine Dauvergne, Canada Research Chair in Migration Law, Professor, University of British Columbia Faculty of Law
Valsamis Mitsilegas, Professor of European Criminal Law, Queen Mary, University of London of School of Law
Nathalie Peutz, Assistant Professor of Arab Crossroads Studies, New York University (in Abu Dhabi)
Kay Warren, Charles Tillinghast, Jr. '32 Professor, International Studies, and Professor of Anthropology, Brown University
Papers presented will be published as a symposium issue of the Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies, which commemorates in 20th anniversary in 2012. Additional information is available on the symposium's website.
