COURSE DESCRIPTION Rutgers University prides itself of its racial and ethnic diversity. Indeed, the state of New Jersey counts amongst the top immigrant destinations in the United States. Yet, New Jersey is also amongst the most segregated states in the United States and it is a state where immigration is hotly contested. Arizona has recently been the focus of the national debate on immigration. However, questions of whether immigration enforcement should be intensified, whether immigration law should be less restrictive, and whether the children of immigrants, particularly the undocumented, ought to enjoy the rights of citizenship or not are being debated in town halls across our state. This course investigates and interrogates global immigration to New Jersey through multiple scholarly perspectives. We will examine how people from vastly different countries like the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Mexico and China have come to make their “Jersey roots” often and, paradoxically, through overlapping yet distinct “routes.” The course will interrogate how the idea of the United States as a “nation of immigrants” is constructed by the state and by immigrants themselves and the ways race, class, gender and sexuality fundamentally shape these ideasas well as what it means to be an “American.” While attentive to what has made immigration a phenomenon as old as human history itself, “Immigrant States” will explore how immigrants sustain their involvement with multiple locations for the making of identity and belonging even as they attempt to craft their own “American” identities. The intensity of immigrants' transnational linkages in this first decade of the twenty-first century is distinctive from the transnational linkages immigrants created and sustained in the past. We will discuss to what extent migrants form communities on bases other than race or ethnicity. Furthermore, we will examine how the children of

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
