Global Issues

The Encyclopedia of Global Human Migration is now available online. A print edition will be available in February 2013. Here's the blurb:

[This resource] provides a complete exploration of the prominent themes, events, and theoretical underpinnings of the movements of human populations from prehistory to the present day. It includes thematic interpretations and theories of migration, as well as the significant contemporary scientific discoveries and scholarly interpretations that have reshaped the way historians and social scientists analyze and map the past.

The Encyclopedia will be joining with Wiley-Blackwell Exchanges to present an online conference entitled, "Migration in a Changing World: Where Do We Go Now?," to be held 5-9 November 2012. The conference is free. Participants will also have access to a range of free content including Encyclopedia articles.
