    With Italy in their baggage

    Migration, circulations and Italianess (XIXth-XXIst) century

    Since the end of the 19th century, Italian emigration to the rest of the world has become one of the most important migratory movements in contemporary history. Twenty-six million Italians left the Peninsula during the hundred years between the 1860s and the 1960s. More recently, since the beginning of the 2000s, a new wave of more skilled migrants has emerged. In Italy itself, as well as in countries of destination, this migration has proved to be a rich source for historical researchers, recently renewed by the circulatory and transnational approaches. This international and interdisciplinar conference intend to expand this reflexion and encourage further discussions on the interaction between the circulation of Italians around the world and their relationship with Italy from a cultural, rather than a political, perspective

    International migrations and labour from the 70s to the present

    Since the 70s the presence of migrants in Europe, and especially in Italy, has become a structural issue and has been at the center of the public and political debate. The progressive demolition of welfare systems, the job precariousness, and new consumer lifestyles have generated different responses in terms of regulation of the admissions of foreign citizens in search of a job and their management (housing issues, access to health care, etc.). Both with regard to organization of forms of protection of immigrants in the exercise of theirs fundamental rights, especially in cases of serious discrimination and exploitation (immigrant associations, trade union action, etc.).

    What Place for Minorities

    Spaces, Norms, and Representations (Europe and Mediterranean, 14th-19th centuries)

    Cet atelier doctoral de cinq jours permettra d’interroger la place des minorités dans des espaces et des temps divers. Alors que l’Europe n’en finit pas de se confronter à la question de la place qu’elle peut et qu’elle veut faire à des minorités extrêmement diverses (nationales, ethniques, religieuses, immémorialement implantées ou à peine arrivées, etc.), il paraît nécessaire de réfléchir aujourd’hui à la place des minorités sur la longue durée et de manière critique – c’est-à-dire, d’abord, en soumettant à une réflexion critique la notion de « minorité », trop couramment acceptée sans examen.

    The Mediterranean: young people, migrations and development

    The aim of the international conference on youth, migrations and development around the Mediterranean, is to highlight the new interdisciplinary research perspectives that are currently emerging on these issues. The conference seeks to bring together members of the scientific community as well as civil society and institutional actors who are interested in the relationship between young people, migrations and development in the Mediterranean area. More specifically, its main objective is to provide a broad overview of the current state of research on three specific populations: descendants of migrants (the so-called “second generation”); children of refugees; unaccompanied minors.
