M. C. Garcia.

This course examines immigration as a major theme in U.S. history and culture. We will discuss immigration in different periods of our national history, and in different locations, from Boston and New York to San Diego, San Francisco, and Honolulu. We will also examine these migrations in a global context since they were part of a worldwide migration that affected millions of people. Lectures, readings, and discussions will examine popular, legal, and political responses to immigration, as reflected in legislation and policy, as well as film, art, literature, and the print media.
