The Journal of American Ethnic History seeks proposals for a special issue on immigration in the U.S. South.
Since the late 1980s and early 1990s, the U.S. South has hosted some of the fastest growing Latina/o and Asian immigrant communities. While these large populations have drawn the attention of sociologists, anthropologists, and popular audiences, less attention has been given to the longer and interconnected histories of immigration to the region.
We are a panel of two advanced doctoral students in history looking for a third to complete our panel for AHA 2019. We hope to find an individual with interests in immigration, border/boundary making, violence, and imperialism. In regards to methods, we seek an individual who considers the place of migrant agency and whose project expands beyond the US. Please email us at the earliest. We look forward to hearing from you.
