We will also consider transnational dynamics that bind together places of origin and destinations and contribute to new relations between identities and places. Together, European, South American and American scholars, specialized in migration studies, will discuss the situation of Latin-­‐American migrations in Spain, the US, Argentina and Bolivia.
