The purpose of this website, Migrant Knowledge, is to foster and disseminate research at the nexus of migration and knowledge studies. Migrating people—social actors with agency—are the main focus. Thus “migrant knowledge.” At the same time, there is room for interesting work on knowledge about migrants, especially if such research helps us to understand migrant knowledge. The two are frequently entangled.
This website aims to stimulate the further growth of a network of scholars working on migrant knowledge and related subjects. The focus is historical, but Migrant Knowledge embraces perspectives from any scholars undertaking such research, regardless of discipline.
