This course provides an introduction to the migration of German-speaking Europeans to North America from the 17th century to the present day. We will consider both European and North American factors motivating these migrations, the journey to the New World, the experiences of immigrants and their descendants, and the ways in which German-speaking Europeans shaped the multicultural history of America.
