Transitions: Journal of Transient Migration (Journal)

ISSN 23977140 , ONLINE ISSN 23977159

Transient migration due to the global movements of people for work, study and lifestyle is part of everyday life. Transitions: Journal of Transient Migration is devoted to providing a platform that explores and investigates the complexities of transient migration. It aims to map the experiences of transient migrants as they engage and interact with communities that are linked both to their home and host nations and to analyse the effects of transient migration as a global, national and communal phenomenon. The journal’s  focus is on how transient migrants cope with transience and how transient migration affects individuals, communities and nations before, during and after the period of transience.

By placing emphasis on transience, Transitions provides an avenue for the interpretation of temporality and unsettledness, which it considers significant and affective. Societies, communities, individuals and cultures are, thus, in a constant yet fluctuating state of transition.

Transitions aims to provide a platform that explores and investigates the complexities of transient migration and to map the experiences of the growing number of transient migrants as they engage and interact with communities that are linked both to their home and host nations. The journal seeks to look at the ways in which transient migration affects individuals and communities in this transitional yet significant period. Its scope includes, but is not limited to, themes of belonging, identity, networks, nation, culture, religion, race and ethnicity, gender and memory while incorporating the roles played by various platforms to facilitate these themes such as media, politics, policy, economy and the creative industries.
