Immigration in American History
A Summer 2019 Graduate-Level Professional Development Course
This course is tied to attendance at the June 4-7 William E. Hewit Educators Conference: A Nation of Immigrants. Please visit the conference page for additional information about the conference and the stipend/honorarium.
The United States has often been referred to as “A Nation of Immigrants.” This course offers a broad overview of immigration’s crucial role in and importance to the American past. We will explore the varied experiences of immigrants in America over time, most of whom faced daunting nativism and discrimination as they sought to carve out new lives in the United States. In addition, we will pay close attention to how immigration history overlaps with and sheds light on broader trends and facets of American history: religion, gender, race, nationalism, and class. You should end the course with an increased awareness of how immigrants shaped American history and how American contexts reshaped immigrants’ lives.
This course provides an opportunity for graduate credit related to additional activities which will tie the conference to further learning. Course is letter-graded.
