Join us for the conference “What's New about the New Immigration to the U.S.? Traditions and Transformations since 1965.” April 7-9, 2011, at the Massachusetts Historical Society, Boston, MA.
Immigration scholars from throughout the U.S. will gather to discuss questions of compelling current interest for American society: what is truly new about the “new” immigration, both documented and undocumented; how does it compare to earlier migration waves; and what have been its consequences?
The Conference will commence on Thursday evening with a keynote address by Maria Cristina Garcia of Cornell University. On Friday and Saturday, sessions will be devoted to the topics “Immigration, Religion, and Identity,” “Immigration and Geography,” “Immigration, Work, and the Economy,” “Immigration and Politics,” and “Immigration, Gender and the Family.”
Aside from the keynote speaker, presenters will not deliver their papers aloud; the papers under discussion at this conference will be available at the Society’s website to registered attendees approximately one month before the program. The registration fee is $75 ($50 for students). For more information, visit www.masshist.org/events/conferences.cfm.
