Acta Universitatis Carolinae – Studia Territorialia, a leading Czech academic journal focusing on area studies and the modern history of North America, Europe and Eurasia, invites authors to submit theoretical, empirical and review articles for its 2016 special issue titled “Sudden Impact: Migration between Reality and Interpretation.”

The current refugee crisis has not only severely affected many European countries, but, as an exceptionally massive and quick movement of millions of people, it has also called for new reflections and reassessment of migration in general. The proposed issue offers an opportunity for authors to join the ongoing international debate on migration through contributions targeting both sides of the problem: migration, in its various forms, as a socio-economic, political, security, and cultural phenomenon and, at the same time, as a topic of academic debate. The articles should focus on migration in North America, Europe, and Eurasia throughout the modern history up to the present. Contributions covering transnational aspects of migration will also be welcome. 

The articles are to be written either in English or in Czech and should be 6,000 to 9,000 words long. The contributions should be sent to the editorial team at or uploaded via AUC Studia Territorialia journal management system. The authors should consult the submission guidelines for further instructions and style. Submissions will be subject to the regular review process of AUC Studia Territorialia.

Abstract submission deadline: June 30, 2016.

Article submission deadline: August 31, 2016.
