Summary

For its issue 4, to be published in the second half of 2020, the peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal Sociétés plurielles is launching a thematic call for papers: " Expatriating ". The theme of expatriation is both historically deep and currently relevant. It has links to topic such as mobility and migration, but has its own specificity, related to the notion of "homeland". Moreover, the verb “expatriating” identifies a voluntary act. A reflection on terms is necessary: does expatriation simply produce what we nowadays call "expats", or does it rather produce exiles, refugees, defectors? Expatriation indeed implies a notion of uprooting, as well as notions of identity, belonging, chosen or constrained. Topics such as stateless people, or returnees (i.e. "Pieds noirs"’ comeback from Algeria to France) are also relevant to the theme. Is expatriation for tax reasons a form of betrayal of the homeland? The individual who goes abroad will be studied preferably in relation to the communities (societies, companies, etc.).

Argument

For its issue 4, to be published in the second half of 2020, the peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal Sociétés plurielles is launching a thematic call for papers: " Expatriating ".

The theme of expatriation is both historically deep and currently relevant. It has links to topic such as mobility and migration, but has its own specificity, related to the notion of "homeland". Moreover, the verb “expatriating” identifies a voluntary act.

This theme may involve a wide range of disciplines: History, Geography, Sociology, Psychology, Law, Political Science, Economic Science, and also Literature and Arts. Iconographic or audio-visual documents are welcome.

A reflection on terms is necessary: does expatriation simply produce what we nowadays call "expats", or does it rather produce exiles, refugees, defectors? Expatriation indeed implies a notion of uprooting, as well as notions of identity, belonging, chosen or constrained. Topics such as stateless people, or returnees (i.e. "Pieds noirs"’ comeback from Algeria to France) are also relevant to the theme. Is expatriation for tax reasons a form of betrayal of the homeland? The individual who goes abroad will be studied preferably in relation to the communities (societies, companies, etc.)

The idea of homeland is at the heart of the topic. Does expatriation imply a change of homeland? Can we have two homelands, or more? Are there forms of international homeland/patriotism?

The causes and motives of expatriations, whether constrained or freely chosen, are to be analysed, through the contribution of historians of the economy and societies, historians of climate, and historians of ideas and cultures (xenophobia, religious persecutions ...).

Other aspects to consider:

  • The sociology of expatriates. Does expatriation concern the history of gender?
  • The practices of expatriates in the host country (diasporas and their functioning), the construction of new identities, memorial practices, the traumas experienced, whether or not expressed.
  • The reception of expatriates in a country: right of asylum, other rights (or on the contrary restrictions) granted to the arrivals, challenges posed to the countries of reception in political, economic, cultural terms, issues related to the integration of newcomers.
  • Expatriation, law and ideology: political leanings of expatriates, demands, ideological justifications, contributions of international law, international institutions, in support of expatriation movements, or against them.

Aims and scopes of the Journal

The journal Sociétés plurielles was born out of the interdisciplinary program of the same name (2014-2018), which brought together humanities and social sciences researchers from nearly twenty laboratories of the COMUE Sorbonne-Paris-Cité.

Societés plurielles covers all fields of study concerned with plurality in society, and strongly supports interdisciplinary approaches. The aim of the journal is to promote work on the challenges of diversity, pluralism policies and crisis management. Work on the historical dimension of plural societies is strongly encouraged.

Similarly, the journal encourages the publication of research results in other forms than text: images, video productions, etc.

It publishes unpublished articles, in French, English, Spanish, German or Italian, not proposed simultaneously to other journals, after selection by the members of its international scientific committee (peer review, with double blind evaluation).
