SOE 512 Identity, Immigration, and Citizenship
Faculty: Dr. Juana O. Watson (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course explores the abundance of new scholarship on the evolution of citizenship in the United States. Ethnographers, anthropologists, sociologists, historians and other scholars have studied the ever-changing criteria (race, identity, class, culture, religion) that have produced such categories as “citizen,” “resident aliens,” “nationals,” and “illegal aliens.” One of the purposes of these readings is to encourage us to understand the Latino/a identity and citizenship in a comparative frame work. The emphasis would be related to identity, citizenship, race, and human experience in the context of cultural migration.
