“(K)ein Einwanderungsland: Redefining German-ness in the 21st Century” Mylii Pukema, a UMD student majoring in International Studies and English, selected her research topic while participating in UMD's Study Abroad program in Germany, and expanded her focus as the subject of an Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP). Pukema's research examines Germany's citizenship and naturalization laws, the changing demographics of Germany's population, and the political and social ramifications of immigration policy stagnation. In this presentation, Pukema will address the history of "guest workers" in Germany and the issues it currently faces in building policies as one of the European nations with the largest foreign populations.
