  • Offers a comparative framework for understanding the modern history of migration and the aesthetics of mobility
  • Foregrounds interdisciplinary debates about belonging, rights, and citizenship
  • Demonstrates how mobility unsettles the national, cultural, racialized, and gendered frames we often use to organize literary and historical study
  • Brings together scholars from the US and Europe to explore the connections between migrant experiences and the emergence of modernity
  • Emphasizes the globalism of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries
