American Studies Association of Turkey (ASAT)40th International American Studies Conference Movement and Mobility in America Hosted By: Ondokuz Mayıs University Department of Foreign Language Education Samsun, Turkey October 26–27, 2020

Movement and mobility lie at the core of American society. Whether through immigration, internal migration, social mobility, or domestic and global expansionism, the United States has always been defined as a nation of frontiers and pioneers, a country that is constantly (re)defining itself, where self-(re)invention is part of the American dream. Movement and mobility in the American context can also be physical, sociological, psychological, or even political, as in the case of mobilizing for social movements.

With its agenda of stemming the alleged “tide of illegal aliens” by building a wall along the US-Mexico border, the Trump Administration has prompted a reevaluation of movement and mobility across the political spectrum. While some argue that this has stimulated a visible resurgence in activism and a revival of social movements in the United States, others have seized the moment to express that this so-called “new wave” of protest is not so new at all, and is part of a long continuum of public engagement that originated during the colonial era.
