Page: Main.Assimilation - Last Modified : 2012-12-28


Assimilation  is a list about what that term and concept should mean in the 21st century. I set it up in 2004 because I was a bit troubled by the way the term "assimilation" is used in public discourse in the U.S. On the one hand, the concept seems overdue for a thoughtful reconceptualization in light of changes in transportation, communications, globalization, international interdependence, and understanding of human rights. On the other, it has several dimensions depending on the viewpoints of who is talking and the context (there being many).

Since I have done most of the posting on this list, it is easy to browse or search the archives  and unnecessary to reproduce links here. The list has been inactive since 2008, though I still believe the topic still merits discussion.

2004 - present
