12 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To Know Our Many Selves profiles the history of Canadian studies, which began as early as the 1840s with the Study of Canada. In discussing this comprehensive examination of culture, Hoerder highlights its unique interdisciplinary approach, which included both sociological and political angles. Years later, as the study of other ethnicities was added to the cultural story of Canada, a solid foundation was formed for the nation's master narrative

Proletarian and gendered mass migrations : a global perspective on continuities and discontinuities from the 19th to the 21st centuries by Dirk Hoerder( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book connects the 19th- and 20th-century labor migrations and migration systems in global transcultural perspective. It emphasizes macro-regional internal continuities or discontinuities and interactions between and within macro-regions. The essays look at migrant workers experiences in constraining frames and the options they seize or constraints they circumvent. It traces the development from 19th-century proletarian migrations to industries and plantations across the globe to 20th- and 21st-century domestics and caregiver migrations. It integrates male and female migration and shows how women have always been present in mass migrations. Studies on historical development over time are supplemented by case studies on present migrations in Asia and from Asia. A systems approach is combined with human agency perspectives

[This book] provides a history of the world told through the movements of its people. It is a broad ... interpretation of the scope, patterns, and consequences of human migrations over the past ten centuries.

Towards a global history of domestic and caregiving workers by Dirk Hoerder( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Domestic and caregiving work has been at the core of human existence throughout history. Poorly paid or even unpaid, this work has been assigned to women in most societes and occasionally to men often as enslaved, indentures, 'adopted' workers. Societies and states set the discriminatory rules, those employed develop strategies of resistance or self-protection (Part One). While some use domestic service as training for their own future independent households, others are confined to it for life and try to avoid damage to their identities (Part Two). Employment conditions are even worse in colonizer-colonized dichotomies, in which the subalternized have to run the households of administrators who believe they are running an empire (Part Three). A team of international scholars addresses these issues globally with a deep historical background. Contributors are: Ally Shireen, Eileen Boris, Dana Cooper, Jennifer Fish, David R.

People in transit : German migrations in comparative perspective, 1820-1930( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The demographic shockwaves of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Europe produced tremendous change in the national economies and affected the political, social, and cultural development of these societies. Migration historians have begun to connect the various European migratory streams during this period with transcontinental migration to North America. This volume contains empirical studies on German in-migration, internal migration, and transatlantic emigration from the 1820s to the 1930s, placed in a comparative perspective of Polish, Swedish, and Irish migration to North America. Special emphasis is placed on the role of women in the process of migration. By looking specifically at postwar Germany, Klaus J. Bade underscores the relevance of this history in a concluding essay
What is migration history? by Christiane Harzig( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of migration is and always has been an interdisciplinary field of study, vast and vibrant in nature. This short introduction to the field, written by leading historians of migration for student readers, offers an acute analysis of key issues across several disciplines. It takes in its scope an overview of migrations through history, how classic theories have interpreted such movements, and contemporary topics and debates including transnational and transcultural lives, access to citizenship, and migrant entrepreneurship. Historical perspectives reveal how the scholarly field emerged and developed over time and across cultures and how historians of migration have recently begun to re-write the story of human life on earth. Throughout, the authors suggest how the movements of millions of mobile men and women persistently challenge changing scholarly paradigms for understanding their lives. Key concepts and theories, such as systems, networks, and gender, are explained and historicized to produce a complex picture of the interaction of migrants, scholars, and disciplinary cultures in a globalized world

Migrants and migration in modern North America : cross-border lives, labor markets, and politics by Dirk Hoerder( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting an unprecedented, integrated view of migration in North America, this interdisciplinary collection of essays illuminates the movements of people within and between Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, and the United States over the past two centuries. Several essays discuss recent migrations from Central America as well. In the introduction, Dirk Hoerder provides a sweeping historical overview of North American societies in the Atlantic world. He also develops and advocates what he and Nora Faires call "transcultural societal studies," an interdisciplinary approach to migration studies that combines migration research across disciplines and at the local, regional, national, and transnational levels. The contributors examine the movements of diverse populations across North America in relation to changing cultural, political, and economic patterns. They describe the ways that people have fashioned cross-border lives, as well as the effects of shifting labor markets in facilitating or hindering cross-border movement, the place of formal and informal politics in migration processes and migrants' lives, and the creation and transformation of borderlands economies, societies, and cultures. This collection offers rich new perspectives on migration in North America and on the broader study of migration history. ContributorsJaime R. AguilaRodolfo Casillas-R.

Distant magnets : expectations and realities in the immigrant experience, 1840-1930( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this illuminating book, an international array of distinguished scholars focus on an important but largely undocumented issue in immigration history: What did immigrants to industrializing Europe and America expect of life in those "distant magnets" to which they migrated in such large numbers from the mid-nineteenth century through the late 1920's? What were their dreams, illusions, myths, fears, and hopes? How were they received in their new societies, and how did they fare? What did they think about and how did they feel? To convey the breadth and diversity of the migration, the volume documents the experiences of peasant and working-class emigrants from England, Ireland, Scandinavia, Italy, Austria, Poland, Hungary, the Balkans, and East European Jewish communities. This comparative perspective enables the authors to distinguish similarities and differences among diverse immigrant groups, experiences, and destinations. Drawing on rare firsthand accounts and moving personal documents - letters, diaries, guidebooks, the labor and immigrant press, songs, poems, plays, novels - the essays chronicle the psychological and social as well as economic and political aspects of the immigrant experience. Evoking the rich texture and diversity of immigrant experience and mentalities, this unique and engaging work makes an important contribution to our understanding of the complex processes of migration and acculturation. The book will be essential for all readers interested in immigration, labor, and ethnic history, and in the personal dimension of the immigrant story
