HIST 4492 American Immigration II: (from 1924) (Spring: 3 )
This is the second half of a two-semester lecture course on American immigration. The first half covers the period up to 1924 and the second from 1924 to the present. Each half can be taken independently of the other. This semester we examine the history of Irish, Italian, Jewish, Latino, and Asian Americans since the Immigration Restriction Act of 1924, with particular attention to the overseas origins of migration; patterns of settlement and mobility; questions of ethnicity, race, labor, and class; anti-immigrant sentiment; and government policy.
