Reviews

"This is an exciting new collection which looks at the various and shifting interplays between memory and migration. It is certainly a welcome addition to historiography in this field." - Kathy Burrell, De Montfort University, UK

"In a world where multiculturalism and cosmopolitanism have come under fire of neo-nationalist and anti-immigrant rhetorics this volume at the crossroad of memory and migration studies is most timely. Its innovative research agenda opens a fresh and much needed impulse that forces scholars to rethink the role of memory (and memory studies) in current scholarly and political discussions about the role of migrants and migration in nation states, and more generally in human societies." - Leo Lucassen, professor of Social History, University of Leiden.

"A worthy contribution to the area of migration studies that can serve to widen scholarship in the field and inspire readers to take into account the relevance of memory when researching the lives of migrants." - Journal of Intercultural Studies 34:4 (2013)
