CAST 205 - Race, Sexuality, Immigration


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 3 Hours
Attribute: 3 HU, CD, WR
New course added 06.03.10.

This course focuses on the intersections of race, sexuality, and immigration by historicizing the U.S. constructions of the “desirable immigrant.” Beginning with the Chinese Exclusion Acts, we will analyze the historical relationships among colonialism and constructions of race, sexuality, and dis/ability by investigating foundational immigration law in the U.S., including the 1924 Johnson-Reed and the 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Acts. We will conclude with an examination of contemporary immigration policy. This course will replace “Queer Mobilities.” Credit will not be given for CAST 205 taken as Queer Mobilities and CAST 205 taken as Race, Sexuality, Immigration.
