The Journal of Interdisciplinary Economics invites submissions for a Special Issue forthcoming in July 2018, on Migration: Change and Continuity, with reference to internal migration in South Asia or cross-border migration within South Asia. For the Special Issue, the guest editors would specifically welcome submissions that apply a historical perspective to contemporary patterns of migration. Such themes as inter-generational mobility, gender, class and caste specificity, and migration persistence are of interest. Papers can focus on any of the larger countries in South Asia. Focus on certain regions known for a history of migration such as Ratnagiri, Ganjam, Azamgarh, Garhwal, or Sivaganga in India, Mirpur in Pakistan, Sylhet in Bangladesh or similar regions in South Asia would be encouraged.
