Earlier versions of this article were presented at the conference “Grenzen, Differenzen, Übergänge” organized by the Volkswagen Foundation in Dresden 2006, at another Volkswagen sponsored workshop on “Concepts and Methods in Migration Research” in Berlin in November of that year, at the Center on Migration, Policy, and Society of Oxford University in February 2007, at the Ecole des hautes études en travail social of Geneva in March 2007, and at the workshop on “Changing Boundaries and Emerging Identities” at the University of Göttingen in June 2008. Special thanks go to Richard Alba, Rainer Bauböck, Homi Bhaba, Sin Yi Cheung, Han Entzinger, Hartmut Esser, David Gellner, Ralph Grillo, Raphaela Hettlage, Frank Kalter, Matthias König, Frank-Olaf Radtke, Karin Schittenhelm, Dimitrina Spencer, Steven Vertovec, Susanne Wessendorf, and Sarah Zingg Wimmer for comments. I thank Claudio Bolzmann, Wilhelm Krull, Karin Schittenhelm, Steve Vertovec, Matthias König, and Claudia Diehl for inviting me to the above venues. My departmental colleagues Rogers Brubaker, Adrian Favell, and Roger Waldinger offered generous advice and criticism that I wish I had been able to take more fully into account. Wes Hiers was kind enough to carefully edit the final version (and to teach me that “that” and “which” are not the same).
