HIS 344 - American Immigration and Ethnic History

2012-2013 Catalog Year

This course examines the history of migration to colonial North America and the United States. The course addresses differences in the voluntary immigration experience, forced migration, and “migration” through conquest. The development of ethnic and racial identities in the United States are linked to these immigration/migration patterns and to legal constructions conceived in immigration and naturalization law. Other themes include internal migration, the history of nativism up to present debates regarding “illegal immigration,” and the development of racial/ethnic communities.

PREREQ: Upper division standing.
