Inheritance and Innovation: An International Symposium on Migration, Ethnicity and the History of U.S. Civilization (Institute of American Studies, Northeast Normal University, Changchun, China: 23-24 July 2019)

The year of 2019 marks the fortieth anniversary for the founding of the American History Research Association of China (AHRAC). To make this occasion a special event of celebration, we would like to invite scholars from China, the U.S. and other countries to join us in panel discussions organized under four major subject areas: (1) the evolution of American history research and teaching in China; (2) the AHRAC-OAH cooperation in the past and future; (3) new research concerning 'Migration, Ethnicity and the History of American Civilizations,' which is the overreaching subject area for faculty members of the Institute of American Studies; and (4) other vital issues in American History.

The histories of American immigration and domestic migration deserve special attention because both movements had transformed the North American Continent. Immigration and Migration, together with Ethnicity, each has left its own marks in American history on the processes of industrialization, urbanization, language, culture, religion, political system, and ultimately the evolution of American civilization. The symposium especially welcomes papers focusing on the following subjects:

* The Teaching of American History in China
* Experience and Prospect of Cooperation between the AHRAC and the OAH
* Immigration and the Transformation of Religious Experiences of Americans
* Migration, Industrialization and Urban History
* Ethnicity, Race and Gender Issues in a Multicultural United States
* Chinese Immigrants and Their Experiences in the United States

For all of the international participants who hope to attend the symposium we will provide local transportation, hotel and meals. All of participants will be responsible for their own international transportation to and from China.
