John SW Park Associate Professor of Asian American Studies jswpark@asamst.ucsb.edu Fall 2008 American Migrations Since 1965: Asians and Others in the United States Asian American Studies 2 This course begins with a brief overview of American immigration law and immigration trends prior to 1965, then examines the profound impact of the Immigration Act of 1965. Although the class focuses on the experiences of Asian immigrants after 1965, we will also discuss immigration trends involving persons from other continents and regions, as well as the impact of these migrations on domestic race relations. Some of the substantive areas covered in this course include economic integration, interracial conflict, community formation, and the politics of immigration reforms and their consequences after 1965. Most of the materials are presented from an interdisciplinary perspective, although there is substantial emphasis on problems from law and public policy.
