Citizenism: Race and Immigration
Spring 2023 • Section 21
• CRN 51221
This is a 3-credit hour course that will examine how shifting racial legal categories are a critical factor in constructing citizenship. Our review will center on intersectional rights, justice, and liberation through the prism of historical, contextualized, and modernized immigration law, enforcement, and politics. Thus, our discussions will analyze identity issues such as race, class, gender, immigration status, and sexuality. Specific doctrinal areas of law covered in this course include Constitutional Law and Criminal Law to advance your understanding of how our legal system and governance impact marginalized communities in the United States. Furthermore, students will use scholarship from civil rights and human rights legal experts to form their own strategies for how to advance the rights of this country’s most marginalized communities. Students can fulfill the Research Paper Component and/or the Upper-Level Writing Requirement through this seminar.
