SALT Three-Session Class: Coming to America Through Immigrant Voices

In this class, taught by Dr. Bob Rice, Professor Emeritus of History, we will examine the history of immigration —first during its classic century from 1820 to 1920; second during a time of restriction and reopening of immigration from 1920 to 1965; and third during the last fifty years of changing patterns, competing viewpoints, and current issues. Although we will consider broad trends and focus on particular policies and statutes, we will also read short passages from immigrant memoirs which relate to immigrants’ uncertainties and hopes in coming to America.
