1 Syllabus Contemporary Immigration Soc 146 Winter 2016 Lecture: Tuesdays, Thursdays 2 3:15 Instructor: Edward Telles Office: SSMS room 3423 Office Hours: Tuesdays, 3:30 5:30 e Teaching Assistant: Liliana V. Rodriguez Office: SSMS 3021 Office Hours: Thursdays, 11:30 1:30 Over the last four decades, immigration has again transformed the United States and is beginning to in Europe. Mass immigration from the Global South over the past 20 years, which is expected to continue increasing in the next 50, presents major challenges to the relatively wealthy and democratic countries of the global North. A major issue is economic: does immigration provide a solution to the labor needs of the host countries with their aging populations? Will these countries be able to absorb these large immigration flows? Why do people migrate across international borders? How will the children of immigrants fare in the new society? Are they becoming part of the mainstream? What is the mainstream? How do sociologists evaluate and theorize immigrant integration? Politically, another set of problems arises: can immigrants and their descendants become full fledged members of host societies? Can states control immigration, including unwanted immigration? Why are some immigrants wanted and others not? Can states sufficiently protect refugees fleeing from countries in which they are persecuted? Culturally, there is widespread public concern about national integrity amidst perceived cultural and linguistic threats and the integration of diverse migrant populations into a national body. This course will examine a wide range of issues regarding immigration, settlement, citizenship, the fate of the second generation and identity from a global perspective, though with an emphasis on the United States. We will explore historical background to immigration and the basic sociological, political and cultural concepts of immigrant integration or assimilation, formal and informal citizenship, migration, immigration, ethnicity, and race, emphasizing how they are used and their relation with one another in various contexts. Much of the course will focus on how migration has shaped lasting ethnic differences.

2 International immigration is one of the hottest topics today, whether it be undocumented immigration in the United States or Syrian refugees in Europe. So hot that the outrageous but viable Republican candidate to President, Donald Trump, has just released his first commercial which features the presumed threats by undocumented Mexican workers, building an insurmountable border wall with Mexico and the threat of ISIS through refugees to Europe and the United States! California stands at the leading edge of these changes as more than one in four residents was born outside of the United States. This course is open to anyone with an interest in immigration and willing to raise the often difficult moral, political and academic questions related to immigration. Required Book : Portes, Alejandro and Rubén G. Rumbaut Immigrant America: A Portrait. University of California Press. Other readings will be posted on Gaucho Space. Grading: 1.

The questions will be a combination of short answer and short essay Page Reflection Memos Weeks 7 10 will focus on 4 topics that have become critical to the current debate and news about immigration. You will be required to write a 1 2 page reflection/memo (typed and double spaced) for 3 of the 4 weeks on the topic that week. Memos will be due at the beginning of the Thursday class.

3 The topics for each week are described in this section. I have sought to describe the content of each class, though the exact topics are subject to change. Required readings are also presented for each week. The readings are subject to change but you will be given at least one week of notice. You should complete the weekly readings for discussion in your section that week. For example, week 2 readings should be completed for your week 2. Inasmuch as possible the lectures will be related to the readings but that will not always be the case. The class will feature guest lecturers who are local, national and international experts, particularly in the final four weeks. Please try to be present for those lectures.
