Publication Title

Repositioning American Migration History: New Directions in Modern Continental Migration, Citizenship, and Community

Abstract

This volume gathers established and new scholars working on North American immigration, transmigration, internal migration, and citizenship whose work analyzes the development of migrant and state-level institutions as well as migrant networks. With contemporary migration research most often focused on the development of transnational communities and the ways international migrants maintain relationships with their sending region that sustain the circular flow of people, ideas, and traditions across national boundaries it is useful to compare these to similar patterns evident within the terrain of internal migration.
