Migration and Cultural Politics: Caribbean Immigrant Experiences in the United States
SOC 258
Spring 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 258, AFAM 258, LAST 249

This course will examine the experiences of contemporary Caribbean immigrants in the United States, especially since 1965. After considering several theories of international migration, and the causes of Caribbean migration to the United States, the course will focus on the experiences of first- and second-generation immigrants from different Caribbean countries such as Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and the English-speaking Commonwealth. The course will focus on the ways in which first- and second-generation immigrants from these countries confront and negotiate the meaning of "race" and "ethnicity" in the United States, and how these forms of cultural politics effect their modes of incorporation in the economy.
