Course Descriptions

IMS 70000 International Migration (3 credits) Professor Philip Kasinitz. Tuesday 4:15-6:15pm.
This course offers an overview of the key current topics and issues in the burgeoning field of international migration. The course will aspire to incorporate the experiences of major immigrant-receiving countries around the world, but the main comparative focus will be on Europe and North America, where the major theories and key concepts are most fully developed. The course emphasis is on exploring both the theoretical debates in the field and the empirical data and case studies on which these debates hinge. Attention will be paid to detailed discussions of “classic” issues of immigration, such as assimilation, incorporation/integration, the labor market, race and ethnic relations, gender and the family, transnationalism, the second generation, and nativism/host hostility. Throughout, the course will take into account the way in which migrant-receiving cities, as contexts of reception, affect the immigrant experience, and in turn, are transformed by immigrants.
