This workshop brings together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars working on displacement and forced migration from Nazi-controlled Europe. Its participants ask how refugees from Nazism reimagined their sense of home and their identities as Europeans and/or Jews after their flight? Participating scholars draw on the methods of performance studies to complicate older paradigms that emphasized such dynamics as Americanization and unidirectional assimilation into host-countries, providing fresh approaches to the study of migration, family, gender, and identity.
