 Special Edited Collection

*Deadline for submission: April 19, 2019*

*Introduction *
There is a certain ambivalence about 1.5 generation immigrants’ migratory
experiences that are unique and different from their parents as well as
from 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants who are born in the host
destination. The term 1.5 generation is mostly used in order to
differentiate those who immigrated as children of their first generation
parents, but who were still born overseas. Most importantly, it refers to
the children of the first generation immigrants who have spent most of
their adolescent years and some of their formative socialization in their
host countries. The ‘in-betweenness’ is something that is unique to this
generation’s experience, and we are constantly reminded of this throughout
the various empirical studies around the world as scholars are attempting
to fill in this ‘generational gap’ within the literature. Yet, it is
contended that 1.5 generation’s strategies and experiences are inconsistent
from the historical experiences of earlier migrants especially with the
growing ICT and transnational connectivity, and across different cultures
and histories of their host and home countries that are situated within
particular citizenship policies, culture, and societal expectations. In
this special edited collection, we invite contributors from scholars who
are researching the particular experiences of 1.5 generation Korean
immigrants of any particular host countries and with any particular topics
in mind. We are interested in work considering the complexities of the term
1.5 generation, and how their ‘in-betweenness’ are shaping and being shaped
by their particular migratory experiences, and how might they change across
time and space.

*Recommended Topics *
We invite contributions from a variety of disciplines and fields including
anthropology, geography, sociology, psychology, economics, migration
studies, political science, and health related studies. Papers submitted to
