Race, Immigration and Citizenship in Contemporary United States
Osher Lifelong Learing Institute (OLLI)
Sonoma State University Cooperage
Tuesdays, April 3rd – May 8th, 2018 @ 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.
This course provides a broad overview of how race intersects with immigration and citizenship in contemporary United States. We will explore how racial hierarchies interact with migration flows to shape understandings of citizenship, racial
inequities, debates on national identity and practices of democratic inclusion and exclusion. At the heart of this course is the topic of social inequality in the United States. Students will learn how inequalities are produced, how they persist and how they can be challenged and overcome. Throughout the class, we will be encouraging students to consider our collective ability to change the racial rules that govern our society to ensure greater prosperity for all.
