Multicultural Germany Project
From the project website: "The Multicultural Germany Project (MGP) seeks to foster cross-disciplinary research that addresses Germany’s changing cultural identity in the era of mass migration, globalization, and European integration. Based in the Department of German at the University of California, Berkeley, we have promoted transatlantic exchange since 2001. While our focus lies on Germany, our research and activities contribute to broader debates on critical multiculturalism and nationalism in a post-national era, political challenges to nation-states, and social change in the face of migration and globalization.
Research is centered on questions of translation and circulation, intermediality, and mobilizing the archives of mobility. Our particular focus is on the intersections between public debates, legal discourses, and artistic interventions. “Multicultural Germany” is not meant to demarcate a particular geopolitical zone or orientation but as a synecdoche, standing for the plurality of international, transnational, and intranational discourses of migration. "
The website includes a chronological history of Germany, a list of readings (Bibliography) and films (Filmography), the student written blog, a Forum and external links.
