Our updated website presents a merger of TRANSIT Journal and the Multicultural Germany Project, a research collaborative and continuously updated archive of migration that began in 2001. Through TRANSIT Journal and Transit Blog, the Department of German at the University of California, Berkeley continues to promote cross-disciplinary research and transatlantic collaboration that addresses Germany’s changing cultural identity in the era of mass migration, globalization, and European integration. While we focus on Germany, our research and activities contribute to broader debates on social and cultural change in the face of migration and globalization.

Our collaborations have resulted in the publication of two sourcebooks that document Germany’s transition into a multiethnic society: Germany in Transit: Nation and Migration, 1955-2005, and Transit Deutschland: Debatten zu Nation und Migration, a significantly revised and updated edition in German.

As a platform for ongoing research and exchange on these and other topics, TRANSIT includes a refereed academic journal, a blog, and resources for teaching and research.
