One of the pioneers of transatlantic linkage studies with his monograph The Westfalians: From Germany to Missouri (Princeton, 1987), he has now embarked on a larger project involving overseas tracing to multiple destinations, supported by an APS Sabbatical Fellowship last year. Other research interests include bilingual education and the immigrant language transition.
