About this book

This interdisciplinary collection of essays focuses on the ways in which movements of people across natural, political, and cultural boundaries shape identities that are inexorably linked to the geographical space that individuals on the move cross, inhabit, and leave behind. As conflicts over identities and space continue to erupt on a regular basis, this book reads the relationship between migration, identity, and space from a fresh and innovative perspective.

Reviews

“This is a good introduction to a broad range of topics involving migration, as well as a diving board for deeper discussion. It’s best suited for humanities and social sciences scholars, students, and those interested in the research of and application of maps and geography to the titular topics. Mapping Migration, Identity, and Space would make a great course reading or textbook, but is also fascinating as a way to brush up on history and the various ways it can be interpreted.” (base line, Vol. 40 (3), June, 2019)
