HIST 26213: Migrations and the Americas, Conquest to Present

A research guide for students in Casey Lurtz's migrations class (Winter 2013)

Welcome to Migrations and the Americas

This guide brings together major sources of primary and secondary, historical and contemporary material on migrations and the Americas.  Because of the wide range of topics you will be considering in this class, this is very much a representative sample of the potential sources we can help you find.

This guide was co-authored with Sarah Hogan, formerly Bibliographer for Sociology, Political Science, Public Policy and International Relations for a research seminar taught in 2013.
