Kathryn Edwards (Section 01)
(Offered as HIST 40 [EU] and EUST 33.) Immigration, integration, and citizenship challenges are not new to Europe, and in today's European Community, they have sparked heated debates over such issues as headscarves in public schools, "ethnic ghettos," and citizenship for immigrants and their descendants. This course will present a comparative analysis of successive immigration policies and nationality laws from the late nineteenth century to the present, with a particular focus on Britain, France and Germany. In addition to the legal and political aspects of immigration and citizenship, we will also address theories and policies of assimilation and integration, debates over secularism and religious symbols, immigrant experiences and notions of multiculturalism. Two class meetings per week.
Fall semester. Visiting Professor Edwards.
