Special Section Topic in October 2018 Issue: Child and Youth Displacement

Neos is aware of the current discourses on child and youth displacements that penetrate the geo-political sphere. In the wake of the politics of child separation, we’ve decided to dedicate a special section in the October 2018 issue to scholars who work in the areas of child/youth/family migration, separation, displacement, adoption, and trauma. We encourage explorations on these topics through an anthropological lens and will prioritize articles that can draw on one of the following: Ethnographies or field work, interdisciplinarity or intersectionality, and your childhood and youth work’s impact on your own theoretical, methodological, or pedagogical understandings in anthropology. While this special section topic was chosen due to its contemporary reference, we invite submissions dealing with all geographic regions and historic periods.

All peer-reviewed articles submitted to this call should fall into this special section topic. Previously reviewed and accepted articles whose publication was delayed to the October 2018 issue will still be published in this issue. Unfortunately, previously submitted articles pending review will not be considered for this issue.

Please refer to the General Submission Guidelines below and Author Agreement for Publication on our website for more detailed information. All material should be sent to
