The objective of this course is to introduce students to a sampling of recent theoretical and empirical work, in various academic disciplines, dealing with immigration. We will achieve this objective by systemically examining very recent research in comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives with a particular focus on the emerging Inter-American immigrant system. Students will learn about the most recent trends in Latin American, Caribbean, and to a lesser extent Asian migration to the US, and will compare the nature of current immigration scholarship in the United States to developments in other postindustrial settings. An examination of the comparative materials will highlight isomorphic conditions – as well as difference – in immigration debates, policies, processes, and outcomes. This course will be interdisciplinary. We shall examine recent data and theoretical work in a variety of fields
such as economics, education, law, policy, psychology, sociocultural anthropology, sociolinguistics, and sociology.
Please contact the course instructor, Marcelo Suarez-Orozco (mso3@nyu[dot]edu) with any questions.
