S., & will compare the nature of current immigration scholarship in the United States to developments in other postindustrial settings.An examination of the comparative materials will highlight isomorphic conditions--as well as differences--in immigration debates, policies, processes, & outcomes.This course will be interdisciplinary.We shall examine recent data & theoretical work in a variety of fieldssuch as economics, education, law, policy, psychology, sociocultural anthropology, sociolinguistics, & sociology.
