Call for Papers: Europe - Migration - Identity (Summer Seminar)

Themes: migration, identity formation, and Europe
Submission deadline: December 10, 2010
3-day Seminar: August 25‐27, 2011 at the University of Minnesota

Conveners Donna Gabaccia (University of Minnesota), Sally Gregory Kohlstedt (University of Minnesota), and Jan Logemann (GHI) aim to bring together established scholars and graduate students from both sides of the Atlantic for a three day seminar. The seminar builds on the University of Minnesota's special emphasis on migration history and a new collaborative research project at the German Historical Institute, "Transatlantic Perspectives: Europe in the Eyes of European Immigrants to the United States, 1940‐1980" (www.ghi‐dc.org/tp). The seminar aims to promote exchanges between scholars engaged in the field of migration and emigration research and those who are interested in processes of "Europeanization" in the modern era (after 1850).
