This seminar will invite students to conduct research on some topic of immigration to and ethnicity in the United States. Issues that might be the basis for research include patterns of migration and migration networks; ethnicization, pluralism, and assimilation; immigration law; gender, immigration, and ethnicity; nativism and inter-ethnic conflict; and religion and ethnicity. The first few weeks of the seminar will include common reading and discussion of a variety of approaches to the study of immigration and ethnicity.
