LLC 621 - Immigration, Race, and Society

[3]
This introductory graduate seminar focuses on current issues of immigration, race-ethnicity, and society using interdisciplinary and multisystem lenses. The first part of the course focuses on the context of immigration by studying who migrates to the U.S. and why, and the consequences of immigration for the U.S. society. The second part of the course focuses on the experiences of children of immigrants in the U.S. We will examine theories of acculturation and assimilation to understand immigrants’ integration (or isolation), the role of ethnic communities in the new country, family and intergenerational relations, issues of identity, and the schooling and educational experiences of immigrant children. The course highlights the diversity and theoretical approaches used to understand issues of immigration and explores significant variations in current immigration and integration experiences and the variability of opportunities available to different ethnic groups.
