I would like to organise a roundtable panel for the upcoming American Historical Association Meeting in Atlanta in January, 4-7, 2007.
The session is tentatively entitled, ‘Incorporating migrants in polyethnic states’.
I welcome papers that examine the ways in which states and societies have integrated migrants into the dominant culture in the second half of the Twentieth century. I encourage papers that are transnational in scope and are interdisciplinary in their approach.
It is my hope that the panel will analyse and draw comparisons between the implementation, and experience, of multicultural policies in various national contexts. The aim of this panel is to shed light on the shared experience of migration across national boundaries and identify areas of divergence.
If you are a historian interested in immigration in the contemporary world, we could possibly organise a session for the 2007 AHA. Please contact me at:
