Irish and German Immigration to Mid-Nineteenth Century America
William Breen & Warren Ellem editors, La Trobe University Press, 1993
Paperback, 57 pp.


This book presents a case study of the experience of two particular immigrant groups. It does not aim to provide a detailed text on migration to the United States, but rather is designed to pose a number of key questions about migration, and to provide material to help the student develop some conclusions about those questions.

A range of cultural, political and economic issues are raised in these case studies. They aim to enable the student to:

  • understand change and continuity in patters of migration and migrant experience over time
  • acquire a knowledge of how people in different times and cultures have interacted, organised their societies and given meaning to their world
  • analyse the ways in which immigrants and migration have been represented visually and in written form
  • understand and use concepts such as causation, power, race, gender and cultural identity
  • respond to historical evidence about migration creatively and critically in order to make meaning of the past
  • develop an awareness of the personal, political and cultural implications of historical representations of migrants
