Migrant Knowledge

Call: German Migrants and Migrating Knowledge in Latin American History

Conference at the German Historical Institute Washington DC, November 3–5, 2022

Many millions of German-speaking migrants left Europe over the last two centuries. While most of them traveled to North America, the second most common destination was Latin America. Argentina, Brazil, and Chile were the most frequent destinations, but German migrants could be found throughout Central and South America. One goal of this conference is to build awareness of the entangled histories of German migrants across the Americas. Another is to better understand the implications of those entanglements for our narratives of the histories of Germany and the Americas.
