Prof. Johanna Schuster-Craig will give a talk titled "The Demands of Integration." Abstract: In the 1980s, German conservative politicians declared loudly that "Germany is not a country of immigration" (Deutschland ist kein Einwanderungsland). Compared to the "classic" countries of immigration in this narrative - the United States, Canada, and Australia - Germany was still a nation that defined itself as ethnically German on German indigenous territory. Citizenship was still determined by blood until the year 2000. By 2011, however, the German Federal Statistics Office noted that 19.5% of Germans have what is called a "migration background," which means that almost 20% of the population has at least one grandparent who immigrated to Germany after 1949. Combined with a birthrate of 1.4 children per woman (far below the replacement rate of 2.1), Germany will have to attract immigrants in order to stabilize its population. Whether or not the country needs immigrants, however, is different from whether or not the population wants immigrants. This talk will describe some of the cultural inflections of the field of public policy known as "integration politics," which is an apparatus of incredible scope and scale designed to incorporate immigrants into civic and cultural life.
