CFP: Special Issue on PIO Diaspora to Commemorate Centenary of End of Indentureship

Today, the People of Indian Origin (PIOs), who originally have roots in India, are found all over the world, with many moving beyond their early destinations as ‘twice migrants’ or ‘double diaspora’. They also have extensive transnational networks with their former ‘homeland’, ‘ancestral land’, and countries of their kith and kin and who are dispersed globally. Besides creating wealth for their nations where they have immigrated, and contributing significantly to the development of those territories, they have participated in the governance of several nations and have contributed to their socio-cultural richness.

To celebrate their presence and contributions and the challenges they face in the diaspora and to commemorate the centenary ending the practice of Indentureship/ Girmitiya labour in 1920, following Abolition of Indenture Labour Act 1917, a Special Issue on Indian Diaspora       (People Of Indian Origin) is going to be published in the Fall 2020 under a reputable publisher. This special issue will cover all topics on historical and contemporary context of PIOs and the Indian diaspora in any part of the globe, in all disciplines including articles that are interdisciplinary in scope.

Complete paper with references may be submitted to the Guest Editor:

Prof. Ghan Shyam, Banaras Hindu University at: [email protected]


The papers may be about 5000-6000 words and illustrations, figures, maps and graphs may be prepared in black and white that may be kept to the minimum.  Papers received would be peer reviewed for enhancing and maintaining quality of the publication.

Authors may follow the same GUIDELINES as in standard social science journals with MLA format.
