Sarah Hackett, Bath Spa University, UK, Modern European History
Sarah Hackett’s research interests focus upon European Muslim immigration in the post-1945 era, particularly to Britain and Germany. Her book (“Foreigners, Minorities and Integration: The Muslim Immigrant Experience in Britain and Germany”, Manchester University Press, 2013) examines the impact that Britain’s relatively liberal immigration policy and Germany’s rigid guest-worker rotation phenomenon have had on the long-term integration of Muslim immigrants at a local level. It looks specifically at the sectors of employment, housing and education, offers a re-assessment of the term “integration” and questions the notion that Islam has played an overwhelming role in ethnic minorities’ experiences. Her other research interests include European city-level migration and integration policies, migration and religion, and Islam in Europe in historical perspective.

Brian Edward Karlsson, George Washington University, Political Science
I am generally interested in why political discourse over immigration and integration takes on different characteristics across Europe and why immigration restrictionism is a relatively mainstream issue in some countries and among certain parties of the right but not others. My dissertation seeks to answer this question by exploring how domestic debates over the Nazi past have impacted immigration and integration discourse in the German-speaking countries of Europe. I am particularly interested in demonstrating how the norms created in the debates over the past and the various memory frames adopted by mainstream political actors have spill-over effects into other political issues that narrow the discursive space for restrictionist immigration policies and privilege certain immigration actors and policy positions over others.
