It is commonly acknowledged that the history of the United States and the history of immigration are inextricably linked. In the last 10 years, this relationship has taken on new and sometimes alarming dimensions. This year’s CASE Conference on February 28th will focus on the NOW, the present lives and experiences of migrants and refugees as they navigate their way into and through the American civil society. Of course this also means we will reach into our curricula and pedagogy for ways to teach the complexities of the moment.
The 2020 CASE Conference will take place at the Chicago History Museum. Besides hearing a dynamic keynote speaker and a variety of panels and presentations, conference participants will be able to explore various exhibitions at the museum, with a particular focus on our rich local history of migration.
