Explores the relationship between immigrant and national culture.

THE IMMIGRANT SCENE: Ethnic Amusements in New York, 1880-1920
Sabine Haenni
University of Minnesota Press | 336 pages | 2008
ISBN 978-0-8166-4981-5 | hardcover | $75.00
ISBN 978-0-8166-4982-2 | paperback | $25.00

Sabine Haenni reveals how theaters in New York created ethnic 
entertainment that shaped the culture of the United States in the 
early twentieth century. In analyzing how communities engaged with 
immigrant theaters and the nascent film culture in New York City, 
Haenni traces the ways in which performance and cinema provided 
virtual mobility and influenced national ideas of immigration, 
culture, and diversity in surprising ways.

"A big, bold, and important book. The Immigrant Scene breaks new 
ground in urban cultural history and performance studies while 
building bridges between earlier works of history and a new 
generation of scholarship. " -Robert W. Snyder, author of The Voice 
of the City: Vaudeville and Popular Culture in New York

Sabine Haenni is associate professor in the Department of Theatre, 
Film, and Dance and in the American Studies Program at Cornell
