Call for Book Proposals / Indiana University Press: “Worlds in Crisis: Refugees, Asylum, and Forced Migration”
The Indiana University Worlds in Crisis: Refugees, Asylum, and Forced Migration series will be a hub for groundbreaking work on the causes of, experiences within, and responses to forced migration. Focusing on refugees, internally displaced people, asylum seekers and the aid system that surrounds them, the series will move beyond mere pathos to investigate the complexity of lived experiences of displacement. We are seeking proposals for books that address topics related to forced migration and displacement. Work in the series will be necessarily multi-scalar, showing how the international, national, and local interact when responding to problems caused when people fall out of the “national order of things” and lose their homes, their states, and their rights. The books that make up the Displacement and Forced Migration series will emerge as crucial resources for students, academics, policy-makers, and practitioners seeking to further their understanding of the complexity of contemporary experiences of forced migration. Many of the books in the series will be based on ethnographic work, but we will also welcome policy-related books and “think piece” books organized around a central concept. The series will prioritize vivid, lively writing that makes strong arguments and engenders widespread discussion.
