Global Mobilities – EAC Featured in New Book
The Expatriate Archive Centre (EAC) is featured in a chapter of Global Mobilities: Refugees, Exiles and Immigrants in Museums and Archives, edited by Amy K. Levin, Professor Emeritus in Northern Illinois University’s English Department. Levin does research in the areas of Women’s Studies and women’s literature, Museum Studies, Victorian literature, African-American literature.
Global Mobilities looks at the role of museums and archives in the politics of integration and cultural diversity and their efforts to further the inclusion of racial and ethnic minority populations. Find the EAC in Chapter 16: “Expanding the Boundaries of History: The Expatriate Archive Centre”. This chapter takes an in-depth look at the history of the EAC, and explores how the founders expanded the concepts of “history” and “archive” to be more inclusive of the experiences of expatriate women in their everyday lives abroad. Other chapters explore different institutions and their approaches to migration history, as well as contextualising the ideas and providing interesting case studies.
Global Mobilities would be an excellent addition to the library of any scholar, archive, university, or private individual with an interest in migration studies, museums, and how the two have interacted.
