Migrant Knowledge

#MigKnow Notes 12



  • Blog post: “Symptoms of the Jet Age: Global Air Mobility and Disease Control in the 1960s” by Carolin Liebisch-Gümüş, History of Knowledge, February 16, 2021.
  • New open access journal: Journal of Migration Studies, published by the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS) at the University of Osnabrück.
  • The relatively new Journal for the History of Knowledge has also begun publishing a blog. The first post, by Sebastian Felten and Christine von Oertzen, and a special issue of the open access journal, edited by the same historians, deal with the topic of bureaucratic knowledge, a theme with implications for scholars working on knowledge about migrants and migration.
  • The “Travelers” special issue of The Journal of Modern History (vol. 93, no. 1, March 2021) features a lot of relevant work, including John Brewer’s “Visiting Vesuvius: Guides, Local Knowledge, Sublime Tourism, and Science, 1760–1890” and Joseph Peterson’s “Honor, Excrement, Ethnography: Colonial Knowledge between Missionary and Militaire in French Algeria.”
  • New Book: David S. Koffman, ed., No better Home?: Jews, Canada, and the Sense of Belonging (University of Toronto Press, 2021).
