The 6th Conference on Immigration to the US South "Immigrants Making an Impact: Challenges and Opportunities in the South and Nationwide" calls for papers/panels/posters for a multidisciplinary meeting on immigration to the US South, but we also welcome comparative analysis of other regions, and /or transnational and global perspectives. The conference will showcase research, community-based programs, advocacy work, and art. There will be a plenary session during the conference to explore the possibility of establishing an Immigration Studies (or Migration Studies) Association.

The planning committee invites all who are interested in participating to submit an abstract of 300 words or less. Please submit your proposals online at: http://saeu.sc.edu/reg/clis/

Submissions are due: June 30, 2016 at 5:00 PM

Abstract reviews and selection of sessions will be completed by a diverse conference planning committee and recruited reviewers. We anticipate sending a confirmation of acceptance by August 15, 2016 to the lead author.

The conference is organized by the Consortium for Latino Immigration Studies in the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina (USC) and is co-sponsored by the Centro de Investigaciones Sobre America del Norte of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico; the Kennesaw State University Maya Heritage Project, the USC Office of the Vice President for Research, the USC Arnold School of Public Health, the USC College of Social Work, the USC Latin American Studies Program and the USC Institute for African American Research.
