Transnational Migration, Family, and Kinship

Philippine Studies is inviting manuscript submissions for a special issue on “Transnational Migration, Family, and Kinship.” We welcome contributions that explore aspects of family life and kinship in the context of migration. Possible topics include cognatic kinship and migration; family norms, values, ideologies, roles, and practices; childrearing, socialization, and education; the family lifecycle and migration; gender dynamics; emotional and material interdependency, the self, and meanings of familial relationships; communications and kin networks; remembering and forgetting across generations; and the broader context delineated, for instance, by law, class structure, political economy, demography, and global householding. Contributions from the social sciences and the humanities are welcome.

Full papers of between 7,000 and 10,000 words should be submitted by 15 January 2008 for peer review, following the journal’s general guidelines for submission of manuscripts. The special issue is slated to appear in late 2008.

Submissions and further inquiries should be directed to Philippine Studies at
