In my thesis, I use a feminist analysis of the Cite Nationale de l'Histoire de l'Immigration, France's first national museum on the history of immigration, to evaluate the successes and shortcomings of the museum. I look at representation of women immigrants and their stories to draw conclusions about whether or not this museum successfully integrates this marginalized history into it's dominant national historical narrative. I explore whether the exclusion of immigrant women and their histories from the permanent exhibition weaken the museum's overall mission.
