CfP: Migration and Divided Societies (Special Issue of Ethnopolitics)

*Migration and divided societies *

*Special Issue of /Ethnopolitics/ *

Guest editors:

*Chris Gilligan*, University of the West of Scotland; *Susan Ball-Petsimeris* , Université de Paris 8

We would like to invite articles on the theme of 'migration and divided societies' for publication in a forthcoming Special Issue of the journal /Ethnopolitics/ . The Special Issue aims to critically examine the relationship between migration and social divisions which are conceptualised as 'ethnic' in popular discourse, academic writing or government policy.

Papers are welcome that raise questions related to concepts and practices of migration and segregation along 'ethnic' lines.

Submissions are welcome from researchers and practitioners at any stage in their career (from postgraduates to emeritus professors). Our main criteria for inclusion will be; relevance to the overall theme, quality of scholarship and originality.

All articles should be between 6000 and 8000 words in length and should use the Harvard style of referencing. All submitted articles will be peer reviewed by at least two different peer reviewers. (For a more detailed style guide to the journals 'house-style' see: http://www.ethnopol itics.org/ ethnopolitics/ styleguide. html ).

Articles should be submitted via email to Chris Gilligan (University of the West of Scotland, UK) at: chris.gilligan@ uws.ac.uk to arrive by Tues 27^th October 2009.

For a fuller outline of the rationale for the Special Issue and a guide to the kinds of questions we would like to address and the kinds of topics that we would consider for publication, see below.

Thanks in advance for your consideration,

Chris Gilligan, University of the West of Scotland, UK

*Migration and divided societies *

The aim of the Special Issue is to examine the relationship between migration and social divisions which are characterised as 'ethnic'.

It is now commonplace to hear that, largely due to migration, most contemporary societies are characterised by ethnic diversity. In these same societies, however, there are often significant levels of segregation along ethnic lines. In political science the term 'divided society' refers to nations or regions, (such as Northern Ireland, South Africa, Bosnia-Herzegovina) , which are characterised by deep social
cleavages based on ethnic difference. In this Special Issue, however, we use the term 'divided society' in a looser sense -- to refer to any state, region or locality which is characterised by significant levels of social divisions which are understood in ethnic terms.

We are particularly interested in articles which examine one or more of
the following topics:

- conceptualising migration and ethnic division

- experiences of immigrants of ethnic division and attempts at
integration

- responses of society (public, policy-makers, the mass media
etc.. ) towards migrants and segregation/ integration

- causes of ethnic division

- outward migration and segregation

We are also particularly interested in articles which have a comparative
dimension. These comparisons could be: across different migrant groups;
across different historical periods; between different countries, or;
between different regions or cities within one country.

We provide the following two themes by way of illustration, of the kinds
of topics and questions that might be asked about migration and social
division:

There has been a lot of focus on immigration and segregation. But what
about emigration? Does emigration create, or entrench, social divisions
in the country of emigration? There is some literature on this topic
which examines the case of forced migrations which are generated through
'ethnic' conflict. This topic could, however, be developed further. Can,
for example, segregation be reversed in post-conflict situations? What
works and what does not work in attempting to reverse segregation? Are
there other, less dramatic ways in which migration creates or entrenches
'ethnic' division? One area which has not been explored in any detail is
the movement of indigenous populations away ('white flight') from areas
where immigrants come to reside. What role, if any, do government
policies play in promoting 'white flight'? To what extent is 'white
flight' promoted by ethnic considerations (rather than, for example,
class and upward social mobility)?

Immigrants to 'divided societies' find a society which is already
characterised by a deep social cleavage based on ethnic difference. What
does it mean to 'integrate' in a society which is not itself integrated?
How do immigrants 'fit in' to such a society? Do they 'take sides'? If
so, what guides their choice? Do they attempt to create a 'third space'
outside of the existing social division? If so, what barriers and
opportunities do they encounter in doing so? These themes have been
explored most extensively in relation to Israel. To what extent is the
Israeli case unique?

These themes are merely illustrative, they do not indicate that
preference will be given to articles which tackle either of these
themes. Our main criteria for inclusion will be; relevance to the
overall theme, quality of scholarship and originality.

If you know anyone who you think would be interested please pass this
message on to them.

Research Fellowships in Australia, Coral Reefs Studies

The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies is contacting people who might be interested in applying for an ARC Future Fellowship. The ARC Centre has recruited 38 full-time research fellows in the past 3 years, working in many fields relevant for coral reefs (e.g. biophysical sciences, climate
change, conservation planning, economics, social science, modelling).

The Centre is a world-leader in coral reef research (see http://www.coralcoe .org.au/annualre port08.pdf) with nodes at four Australian Universities. James Cook University and the ARC Centre will host the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium in Australia in 2012.

The ARC Future Fellowship scheme was launched in 2009. Two hundred awards are available each year. They are designed to attract outstanding mid-career researchers (5 to 15 years post-PhD) to Australia and are open to citizens of all countries.

These are four-year fellowships that provide salaries of up to $140,000/year
(see http://www.arc. gov.au/ncgp/ futurefel/ future_default. htm). Institutions that host Future Fellows negotiate additional support with applicants, such as salary top-up, research support, and continuing employment beyond the term of the fellowship.
Another scheme, ARC Discovery Fellowships, supports postdoctoral fellows within 3 years of their PhD. A third scheme, ARC Laureate Fellowships supports Professorial Fellows who are rising global leaders in their field.

If you are interested in joining the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies using any of these schemes (which span all career stages), please contact us for further advice by emailing your CV to info@coralcoe. org.au

Call for Papers: Indigenous Pop, Jazz, Rock, Folk, Rap, Hip...

CFP: call for contributors to a new critical collection Indigenous pop jazz, rock, rockabilly, folk, country western, blues, rap, reggae, metal, hip-hop, punk
http://indigenousissuestoday.blogspot.com/2009/06/indigenous-pop-jazz-rock-
folk-rap-hip.html

Edited by Jeff Berglund, Kimberli Lee, and Janis (Jan) Johnson

This proposed collection of criticism examines the understudied and academically underappreciated varieties of musical traditions that emerged in Indigenous communities in Central and North America throughout the twentieth century and that continue to flourish. In particular, we'll trace the transition of musical expression from the era following World War I and beyond, looking at the way that blues, jazz, country/western, rock, rockabilly, folk, reggae, metal, punk, hip hop and rap performers fuse "non-Indigenous" and Indigenous musical modes.

The volume's three editors contend that contemporary musical expression deserves to be studied alongside the greatest works of literature, particularly if we want clear insights into the ways that art, audience and context interrelate in immediate ways; to not consider the impact of music and song is a political act in itself, not merely academic neglect. Our intended audience is the broad, interdisciplinary field of Indigenous Studies as well as American Studies, literary studies, and music studies. We have serious academic press interest.

We're especially interested in discussing the intersection of "tradition" and popular art, intercultural cross-pollinations, commerce, and activism.

We are interested in essays that wrestle with terminologies such as "tradition," "popular," "Indigenous, " "post-traditional" and question the ways that tradition is reinvented and passed on. Additionally, we're interested in essays that examine the way performers and their music expand on tribal archives of songwork-including their spiritual and social dimensions-as well as works that foreground how music functions as a form of activism and/or social commentary on the past or the present.

Please send a detailed abstract (at least two pages) with possible sources by September 1, 2009 to Jeff.Berglund@ nau.edu.

Pictura egipteana - curs teoretic si practic

Asociatia Culturala "Noua Acropola" are deosebita placere sa va anunte ca se reia
Cursul de pictura egipteana

Cursulse va desfasura in zilele de Sambata si Duminica(20, 21, 27, 28 iunie), intre orele 13:00-16:00, in sediul nostru din Str. Stefan Mihaileanu nr. 30A (puncte de reper Foisorul de Foc, liceul A.D. Xenopol, Hala Traian).

Egiptenii nu au pictat de dragul artei in sine, pentru a impodobi muzee sau galerii sau pentru colectionarii de arta. Ei au dorit sa fie inconjurati de frumusete, atat in viata, cat si in moarte. Toate imaginile au avut intentii sacre, s-au referit la o
lume invizibila, a zeilor. Arta avea ca scop sa fie o punte intre cele doua lumi. Toate scenele reprezentate aveau un caracter etern. Artistii egipteni au incercat sa arate omul in toate ipostazele lui, de la viata cotidiana, pana la cele mai inalte aspiratii spirituale, simbolizate prin forme idealizate si prin reprezentari ale Divinitatilor. Au incercat sa sublinieze "esenta eterna", o realitate constanta, fara variatii schimbatoare.

Componenta teoretica a cursului consta in prezentarea istoriei picturii egiptene, a tehnicilor de pictura, a canoanelor, simbolismului culorilor si a panteonului egiptean. Partea practica consta din realizarea unei picturi egiptene pe placa in tehnica similara cu pictura murala egipteana.

Cursul costa 250 lei (200 lei pentru elevi si studenti), cu plata in doua transe.
Toate materialele necesare sunt puse la dispozitie de organizatori, iar lucrarea realizata apartine cursantului.

PhD Studentship-Electricity Demand Reduction and Responsive Strategies for Mining Operations

University of Exeter
CSM Trust funded PhD Studentship
Electricity Demand Reduction and Responsive Strategies for Mining Operations

Applications are invited for a three year PhD studentship based within the Camborne School of Mines (CSM), at the University of Exeter's Cornwall Campus near Falmouth, researching the theme of € ¢â’ ’¸Electricity Demand Reduction and Responsive Strategies for Mining Operations'. This project will contribute to CSM's continuing expansion of research interests in mining and energy. The studentship is being funded by the CSM Trust and will be supervised by Dr Gareth Kennedy and Dr Patrick Foster.

Main objectives of the project:
The electricity demand of mining operations has become an increasingly important factor during the last few decades, particularly with rising energy costs and the limited availability of energy resource. As mining operations continue to grow larger in size, and with the price of electricity set to increase significantly in the near future, a comprehensive strategy to account for these changes will be necessary. The project will concentrate predominantly on developing novel demand reduction and management strategies capable of reducing the electricity demand specifically when the mine is operating under peak conditions. The scheme will forecast the electrical efficiency of a mine several hours and days in advanced, providing the mining operator a real time and pro-active tool for advisory decision support.

The aims and objectives of the project are to: -

study the load demand profile in the mining sector to characterise the overall effects of load-shifting and reduction technique;
develop demand reduction and management strategies that can be deployed in an underground mine without affecting the safe operation of the mines;
develop a prototype smart technology and instrumentation system that will enable such strategies to be implemented;
evaluate carbon footprint reduction as the result of implementing a demand reduction/managemen t system in the mining sector.

Main duties and responsibilities:
The successful applicant will make original contributions to this research through the development of novel control and responsive strategies for reducing electricity costs in mining operations. He/she will be expected to study mine power systems (if there is no prior knowledge) and operations in order to develop this intelligent responsive scheme. The student will be required to participate in the PhD training and development programme offered by the University.

The successful student will also have the opportunity to work closely with the mining industry. This will include on-site visits to underground mines (potentially both in and outside of the UK), obtaining data, and collaborating with major mining companies. In addition to the project work, the student will be expected to attend and present at international conference(s) and publish their work.

Relevant Experience/Qualific ations/Skills:
Essential

Experience in numerical and computational methods.
A minimum of an Upper Second Class (2.1) degree in electrical and electronic engineering, mining engineering or related disciplines
Competent use of email and word processing;
Possess good verbal and written communication skills, including the ability to produce high quality written technical reports.
Desirable

Evidence of experience in modelling and forecasting electricity demand would be an advantage.

Experience in smart technology and instrumentation system design.

An MSc in electrical, electronic, or mining engineering or a related discipline would be an advantage.

Strong analytical and problem solving skills, including a good knowledge in electrical and electronic engineering. Good understanding about mining operations will be an advantage.

Familiar with LABView, MATLAB or power system simulation packages such as IPSA, PowerFactory/ DigSILENT, PSS/E and PSCAD/EMTDC.

The studentship is for three years and available from 1 October 2009. It includes a maintenance grant of € ¢Â£13290 per annum with all fees paid for Home/EU students.
Applicants should send a covering letter and a detailed CV, together with names and addresses of two referees to Laura Taylor, sogaer-schooloffice @exeter.ac. uk. Closing date: 30th June 2009

Informal Enquiries: Before submitting an application you may wish to discuss the post further by contacting Dr Gareth Kennedy (Tel: 01326 371876, email: g.a.kennedy@ exeter.ac. uk) or Dr Patrick Foster (Tel: 01326 371828, email: p.j.foster@exeter. ac.uk).

New Book: Romania and the European Union

Romania and the European Union: How the Weak Vanquished the Strong.
By Tom Gallagher.
Publisher: Manchester University Press.
Date of publication: 8 June 2009
ISBN 078-0-7190-7743- 2, £60.00, hardback
304 pp.
www.manchesteruniversitypress.co.uk,
mup@manchester.ac.uk

According to Tom Gallagher, Romania's predatory rulers, the heirs of the communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausecsu, have inflicted a stinging defeat on the European Union. He argues convincingly that Brussels was tricked into offering full membership to this Balkan country in return for substantial reforms which its rulers now refuse to carry out. This book unmasks the failure of the EU to match its visionary promises of transforming Romania with the shabby reality. Benefiting from access to internal reports and leading figures involved in a decade of negotiations, it shows how Eurocrats were outwitted by unscupulous local politicians who turned the EU's multi-level decision-making processes into a laughing-stock. The EU's famous 'soft power'
turnd out to be a mirage, as it was unable to summon up the willpower to insist that this key Balkan state embraced its standards of behaviour in the political and economic realms.

The book unravels policy failures in the realms of justice, administration, agriculture and pre-accession aid and shows how Romania moved backwards politically during the years of negotiations. It is an invaluable book for academic and studenmts who need to know about the practice, as well as the theory of eastern enlargement, and will be an effective tool for policy-makers, business people, and others involved with Romania.

Professor Tom Gallaghr has taught at the Department of Peace Studies, Bradford
University for many years and six of his nine single-authored books have explored the political and international relations of the Balkans.
