Migration Studies
Migration Studies is a new multi-disciplinary refereed journal from Oxford University Press. It will publish work that significantly advances our understanding of the determinants, processes and outcomes of human migration in all its manifestations.

The Journal of the Institute of Latvia's History (Latvijas Vēstures Institūta Žurnāls) invites article submissions for a Special Issue to appear at the end of 2013.

The topic of this Special Issue is the role of diaspora from Latvia and Latvians in national and international politics since the mid-19th century. We invite submissions that discuss various instances of either self-identified Latvians or groups from Latvia that resided outside of Latvia’s territory engaging in political processes in their host countries and on international scale.

We are also interested in articles that explore political collaborations that Latvian or Latvia-related diaspora developed with other ethnic groups. Our goal is to generate empirical evidence as well as develop a broad historical/sociological analysis of the diverse political affiliations, engagements and activities of Latvian and Latvia-related diaspora. We also welcome historiographic and conceptual articles offering new scholarly perspectives on analyzing politics in Latvian and Latvia-related diaspora.

Articles both in English and Latvian are welcome. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2013. For further information and article submissions please contact Ieva Zake (Rowan University) at zake@rowan.edu or Ineta Lipsa (Latvian Academy of Sciences) at lipsa@lza.lv.
