from nelly.blacker-hanson@VALPO.EDU Neteros, I have offered (and will again in Spring 2014) a course that is called, "History of Latino Immigration." I begin, however, by situating the immigration in the larger history of the US as a nation of immigrants, including showing the film "Out of Ireland." And, of course, noting that much of the "Mexican-American" population does not descend from immigrants, nor would Puerto Rican migrants further complicates definitions. It is a film-based course, and I divide it up somewhat chronologically by immigrant groups - Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central American, Haitian and Dominican ... I use "Harvest of Empire" to frame the course. If anyone is interested in more sources and films, you are welcome to contact me off-line ... and as I'll be resurrecting this class, *I welcome text suggestions*. Best, nelly blacker-hanson ---------- From: Alan Kraut <email@example.com> I teach an undergraduate survey course in immigration and the ethnic experience called "Ethnicity in America" in the History Department at American University. I teach a course at the graduate level called "Migration and Medicine" co-listed by the School of International Service and the History Department. I also occasionally teach a graduate course entitled "Through Immigrant Eyes" and an occasional undergraduate colloquium entitled "Immigration and Identity." Alan Kraut University Professor & Professor of History American University ---------- From: "Royden Loewen" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Hi all: I teach an Honour's (4th year) course titled 'Immigration and Ethnicity in the United States and Canada', a comparative history course I first taught as a graduate course at the U of Chicago in 1994/95. We also teach 'World Migrations' at the 1st and 2nd year levels. Royden Loewen Chair in Mennonite Studies Department of History University of Winnipeg Winnipeg, Manitoba CANADA R3B 2E9 ---------- From: Jerry Krase <email@example.com> at my own institution cuny immigration as a subject is taught regularly in several departments. it is also taught in variations such as immigration to new york city that i have regularly taught at the graduate level. if you are planning a larger survey, it would be best to first sample bulletins. also, publishers regularly do surveys to plan their publication offerings. when people write text books they always ask about market. i have reviewed proposals for immigration texts several times and have seen the arguments. i assume you already know all of this. pew might be another source of information. other rubrics at cuny have been 'the peopling of the usa', 'race and culture,' and many courses in sociology have a demographic-immigration component. today it is hot issue so courses and immigration 'centers' have also been springing up across the nation. best, jerry --30--
