Type LECTURE
Course Description In 2010, one in eight residents of the United States was born outside the country. This course will consider why people move and the policies that let some people in while keeping others out, assimilation and incorporation, the experiences of the immigrants and their U.S.-born children, and how sociologists theorize, measure, and evaluate immigrant incorporation. We will also look at the challenges immigrants bring to American society: post-9/11 concerns about security, questions about democracy, participation and language use, and debates about tolerance and multiculturalism. The course focuses on receiving countries and the lives of immigrants, not the impact of migration on those left behind.
