Notes: DPE: This course examines the history of immigration patterns of people coming to the U.S. from all over the world from the late 18th century to the present. By examining American immigration history through immigration law and a variety of texts (novels, census materials, legal cases, oral histories, and secondary sources) this class will reveal a constant tension in American society that vacillates between welcoming and shunning immigrants, depending on their race, religion, class, gender, and sexuality. The power to include and exclude various people wishing to become part of our country and society has been a conflict that has played out for nearly all of our national history.
