Class description

How do second-generation immigrant youth and young adults form national and transnational identities? What kinds of civic and political projects do they engage in? How do government policy, citizenship, neighborhood, school, ethnic community, family, race, class, and gender influence political participation, civic engagement, and social belonging? We explore these and related questions in a set of interdisciplinary readings.
