We would like to invite schlars studying identity of
immigrants/immigration in urban space to join our panel for the 2009 OAH annual meeting in Seattle, WA, from March 26 to March 29, 2009.
Our papers discuss racial, ethnic, and national identity of immigrants in cities roughly between 1870s and 1930s, but each of us is looking at a different group: I focus on Japanese in Chicago, and Maria focuses on Mexicans in a Texan border city. Keywords in our presentations
include: immigration, identity, race, ethnicity, gender, nationalism, community, and urban space, and we would appreciate adding scholars to the panel who would like to discuss similar themes.
Please send me your abstract and C.V. to me(firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 8 (Fri.), 2008, in order to accommodate the OAH's official deadline for the final preparation for the panel/presentations.
Please note that your proposal must include the following information to accommodate OAH's requirements:
• a complete mailing address, e-mail, phone number, and affiliation foreach participant;
• a prospectus of no more than 250 words for each presentation;
• a vita of no more than 500 words for each participant.
