New Jersey in the Heyday of Immigration 1880-1924, Mahwah Museum Lecture Series

Thursday, February 8, 2018

John A. Gronbeck-Tedesco, Associate Professor of American Studies at Ramapo College of NJ, will examine the vast changes taking place in U.S. immigration between 1880 and 1930. Immigration policy intersected with fears and demands involving labor, religion, politics, and biological fitness. In the process, immigrants reshaped the American nation in the communities they inhabited, this pattern is reflected in Mahwah and the rest of NJ. The state remains a fitting microcosm of the transformations taking place on the national landscape while bearing nuances unique to region. Refreshments served afterwards. Hosted by Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Tpke. It currently features the new exhibits Kilmer: The Man and WWI Sarajevo to Versailles and the continuing exhibits Mahwahs Herstory: The Changing Roles of Women in Mahwah’s History, and Medicine in Mahwah. Permanent exhibits include Les Paul in Mahwah and The Donald Cooper Model RR. Museum is open weekends and Wednesdays 1-4 pm.
