11 April: symposium The Expatriate Experience: Past and Present
On its fifth anniversary, the Expatriate Archive Centre (EAC) has great pleasure in announcing a symposium on expatriation from a historical perspective and the role of private documents in research on migration history.
Until now, most research on migration can be found in the area of the social sciences. However, the unique experiences of skilled migrants (or expatriates) specifically, have had less attention in historical research. Skilled migration is currently a major trend amongst migration patterns and this symposium aims to spotlight the potential for historical research. In a plenary session and different workshops we will study the potential research issues in this day symposium.
