Description

 What does it mean to "queer" the history of immigration and immigrant communities in the United States? Queering, as practice that makes explicit and then de-centers norms, first leads us to question who has been normalized as an "immigrant" in the United States. First, this class examines women's roles in immigration. Second, we examine sexual practices, identities, and desires in immigrant communities and in immigration policy. Finally, we question the normative frameworks of U.S. immigration history, including the "nation of immigrants" discourse, and the relationship of immigrant paradigms to indigeneity and Blackness.

Course Requirements:

Components of this class include required attendance and participation, creating discussion questions, one class presentation, and a final research paper which is scaffolded in parts throughout the semester.
