HIST 5491 Senior Colloquium: Topics in U.S. Immigration History (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This senior colloquium will delve into a number of topics in U.S. immigration history since the mid-19th century that we do not ordinarily have time to discuss in more general immigration history classes. The readings will therefore be arranged thematically rather than chronologically. Some of the topics we will cover are deportation, refugee admissions and resettlement, immigration fraud, smuggling, and trafficking. Students will research and write a paper on a subject of their choice that will demonstrate mastery of historical methods and analysis.

Schedule: Periodically

Instructor(s): Arissa Oh

Prerequisites: Senior History Major Standing.
