E Pluribus Unum?: American Immigration and Ethnicity

It has been often said that America is a nation of immigrants. This course will examine why so many individuals have come to America over the years, the experiences of foreign-born people in America, how native-born Americans have received those immigrants, how American immigration laws have changed over the years, and what role ethnicity has played in American society. In doing so, we will utilize a variety of sources, including historical monographs, primary sources, movies, and memoirs. We will pay careful attention to the similarities and differences between the experiences of various immigrant groups over time.
