By provoke we mean that we want people to challenge their own assumptions, perhaps reflecting on the common sense of migration stories in popular media and conventional scholarship. Migration itself is a slippery term, mutable in its definition, as likely to invoke old ‘self evident’ truths as much as new thoughts. We are not arguing a case ‘for’ or ‘against’ migration as such but instead trying to make people reflect on how mobility makes us reconsider our own lives and our relationships to others, to turn our private thoughts into public concerns.
We argue that migration is not only about those who move. The study of migration should not be solely about the measurement and containment of countable numbers of migrants. Migration is about those who stay as well as those who go; the consequences for the left behind, the new arrivals and those who find their neighbourhood or their city transformed as a result of rapid demographic change prompted by new arrivals or long term departures. It is about how people mange to get by in a world that is changing so fast, connections that draw people much closer in time and space through technologies of travel, virtual presence and mediated global links. But it is also about how these patterns of spatial proximity are sometimes coupled with separations of ever greater social distances through multiple forms of economic, cultural and political polarisation.
We do not pretend this collection to be comprehensive. Some areas of the globe are covered more exhaustively than others, with British concerns disproportionately present. The anthology publication is part of the COMPAS 10th birthday celebrations and the collection focuses principally on writing of COMPAS scholars, our research collaborators and authors we admire. But we have suggested some routes out of the volume, both in terms of key past writing on migration and some reflections of the themes that emerge from the collection.
We have combined poetry and prose, practical pieces and theoretical reflections, personal with statistical description, to reflect this sense of disturbance. Through its multiplicity we hope that people will explore the collection for those things that interest them most or that they find most useful. The whole volume can be read online or downloaded for free as an ebook. The anthology can also be bought in hard copy. We hope that you enjoy what you find and are suitably provoked.
Colgan himself supplies us with the name and derivation of the Irish word for fairy, Sidh (shee), still used throughout the country. ÒFantastical spirits,Ó he writes, Òare by the Irish called men of the Sidh, because they are seen, as it were, to come out of the beautiful hills to infest men, and hence the vulgar belief that they reside in certain subterranean habitations; and sometimes the hills themselves are called by the Irish Sidhe or Siodha.Ó
In ColganÕs time, then, the fairy superstition had passed from the upper classes, gradually disenthralled of it by the influence of Christianity to the common people, among whom it is still rife. But it is clear that in the time of St. Patrick a belief in a world of fairies existed even in the KingÕs household, for it is recorded that Òwhen the two daughters of King Leary of Ireland, Ethnea the fair and Fedelma the ruddy, came early one morning to the well of Clebach to wash, they found there a synod of holy bishops with Patrick. And they knew not whence they came, or in what form, or from what people, or from what country; but they supposedÊthem to be Duine Sidh, or gods of the earth, or a phantasm.Ó
As suggested, the belief of the Princesses obtains to this very day amongst the peasantry of remote districts in Ireland, who still maintain that the fairies inhabit the Sidhe, or hills, and record instances of relations and friends being transported into their underground palaces.
The truth is that the Gaelic peasant, Scotch and Irish, is a mystic, and believes not only in this world, and the world to come, but in that other world which is the world of Faery, and which exercises an extraordinary influence upon many actions of his life.
