Sažetak
An estimated 50 million people migrated from Europe to the United States in the great migration that swept Europe from the mid-19th to the early 20th century. Since both the Irish and the Croats participated in it in great numbers, this allows for an investigation of how the act of migration was registered in literary and cultural production that addressed this issue in both societies. In my presentation I will be looking both at the physical act of mobility and transfer as such, as well as symoblic and immaterial renderings attending migration and its consequences in the two societies, respectively. From the rich archive the references will be made to a few chosen texts by Irish (American) and Croatian (American) authors, such as: Transatlantic (Colum McCann) and The Turk and My Mother (Mary Helen Stefaniak).
