The book investigates processes and strategies of remembering the so-called Georgia Salzburger exiles,
German-speaking immigrants in the 18th century British colony of Georgia. The longitudinal study
explores the construction of Georgia Salzburger memory in what is today Austria, Germany and the United
States from the 18th to the 21st century. The focus is set on processes of memoria
throughout three centuries at the intersections between the creation of German-American, Lutheran, U.S.-American
and `Southern‘ identity, memories of migration, nativism and Whiteness.

Christine Marie Koch is a scholar of American studies and transatlantic history. Her research focuses on memory studies, Whiteness, and interdisciplinary approaches.
