This edited publication is the outcome of the 100 Years in America’ conference, which took place in the Hellenic College in Brookline, Massachusetts, on the 11th of October 2008, and was attended by over 60 participants. The aim of the conference was twofold: firstly, it celebrated the centenary of the St. George’s Hellenic Benefit Society of Tsamanta[s] in Worcester, Massachusetts, as well as acknowledged the society’s contribution to social and philanthropic causes, both in Europe and America; secondly, it aimed to develop our historical and cultural knowledge about the movement of individuals, ideas and values, and the desire of migrants to preserve their identity and culture during their gradual integration into their adopted societies. Notwithstanding the work already undertaken on transatlantic migration from southeastern of Europe, the topic is yet to be explored in depth. This interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary conference brought together specialists from a variety of fields (history, economics, politics, anthropology, sociology, ethnology and cultural and museum studies) in order to fill this gap by promoting a collective reflection of this important phenomenon, which has influenced societies in both sides of the Atlantic.\ud \ud This highly successful interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary conference achieved its objectives by bringing together specialists from a variety of fields (history, economics, politics, anthropology, sociology, geography and cultural studies) to discuss those aspects of the migration process that have influenced, and are still influencing, societies on both sides of the Atlantic.
