About

1924年《利记APP官网手机版》和1924年《利记手机官网》的百年纪念提供了一个机会来探索两个主题的交集,这两个主题并不总是被认为是相互关联的. However, as both scholars of Native American and U.S. 移民史与移民殖民主义在各自领域的遗产纠缠不清, 上述立法之间的利记手机官网变得更加清晰. 最近的学术研究指出,美国的“人口化”不仅仅是通过国际移民的力量发生的, but also reflects the incorporation of Indigenous peoples, forced or enslaved migrants from Africa and elsewhere, 边界的移动把人们变成了新移民,不管他们是否真的移动了. The degree to which those groups were included or excluded from citizenship, cultural “membership,” or even the right to remain in the nation has however varied widely. 本次会议将汇集学者探讨与公民身份和其他变化的国家归属反映在这两个具有里程碑意义的立法作品的广泛主题.

会议和研讨会将在马萨诸塞州历史学会和波士顿萨福克大学举行 11-13 July 2024. The panels and presentations will take place on 11-12 July with the teacher workshop on 13 July.
