WGS 2134 – Immigration, Gender, and Race

This class will investigate how gender and race shape immigration patterns, how they are incorporated into the dynamics of corporate globalization, and how they operate in immigrant social networks. We will cover topics such as employment, family, identity, sexuality, immigrant social life, globalization, and transnationalism. While examining the history of immigration in the U.S and other countries, we will analyze how economic status, citizenship, and privilege become enmeshed in vectors of power such as gender, race, and nation.
