LCS-101BD-04 Immigrant Experiences

This course will analyze different immigrant experiences as well as attitudes and current trends around immigration in the U.S. through engagement with a novel, articles, podcasts, films and other sources. To showcase and put learning into practice, students will carry out three research projects that each explore an immigrant issue from class and will present findings to the class. One goal of this course is for students to better understand how identity, culture and experiences in the U.S. relate and connect with those of other immigrant groups in the U.S. Finally this course aims to provide a critical perspective on immigrant discourses in the U.S.
