EIHS Workshop: Journeys Across Time: Dynamic Histories of Movement and Migration

Paige Newhouse, Fadilat T. Olasupo, Lucy Smith, Mimi Brown Wooten, Ian S. Moyer (moderator)

Movement, migration, and historical change are deeply connected. This workshop aims to investigate how movement acts as a catalyst for historical transformations and to shed light on the consequences of human and non-human mobility. How does the movement of people across time and space impact societies, economies, and identities? What is lost or gained when people move? What are the social, economic, and cultural impacts of migration on communities and societies? In this workshop, panelists will explore histories of movement, from trans-Atlantic trade to modern migration from Vietnam and Nigeria. Panelists consider the dynamics of how those navigating movement engage in negotiations, shape memories, and are received by their new environments.
