Call for Papers

We are now accepting applications for Asia-Pacific Worlds in Motion IV (APWIM IV).

The theme for APWIM IV is Fixities and Fluidities: Navigating Dynamics in Migration. The theme foregrounds the interlocking dynamics of ‘fixities’ and ‘fluidities’ in migration today, from a range of social, cultural, political, and economic perspectives.

For full information on the conference theme and application process, download our CFP. Or download the APWIM IV Poster for a quick summary.

We’d like to acknowledge Kara Bermejo for the excellent APWIM logo and APWIM IV theme design. Kara is a freelance graphic designer based in Manila, Philippines.
