Students: A Course to Continue Learning about Immigration

Students: If you would like to learn more about the immigration that you have seen in Champaign-Urbana through your community-based learning work and put it into a global context, consider the following course for this spring.

NEW Spring 2009 Course:
CAS 587, CRN 31696, Advanced Study: Special Topics
Topic: Immigration: History and Policy
Mondays, 3:00 - 4:50 pm
at Levis Faculty Center, , 919 W. Illinois St., Urbana
This is an interdisciplinary seminar focusing on the history and current policy issues involving transnational migration. Some of the reading and discussion will deal with immigration to the United States from the nineteenth century to the present, but we intend to consider migration as a global phenomenon and to study other societies as well. Offered under the auspices of the Center for Advanced Study Campus-wide Initiative on Immigration, the seminar integrates a series of visitors dealing with Asian, Latin American, and European immigration and will be augmented with a speaker series, forums, and other events.
Instructors: Gale Summerfield and Jim Barrett
Enrollment by permission of instructor
