Race, Ethnicity, and Immigrants' Experiences in Present Day United States

American Culture Studies 3018 - Spring 2020

Issues surrounding race, ethnicity, and immigration have become increasingly intertwined politically and publicly in the United States during the first 20 years of the 21st century. This class examines current social and political environments and circumstances that surround these issues. We begin with a blunt examination of political and social conditions that surround these experiences, continue by considering existing theories that attempt to explain the social and political dynamics that account for current relations, and finish out the class by reading recent studies that address specific facets of race, ethnic and immigrant circumstances and experiences, including variations in access to equitable education, economic opportunities, political representation, and technological resources.
