SOC 31152 Immigration and the Second Generation (3 Credits)

The second generation, native-born of foreign parentage, is often caught between two distinctive worlds of their immigrant parents and American society. The study of the second generation is a cutting-edge topic in the fields of immigration and ethnic and racial studies as they are making the transition from school to work. The course examines the ways in which children of immigrants are integrating into different US institutions, such as education, economy, politics, as well as American culture. A key concern is to examine existing theories of assimilation in terms of the similarities and differences between the old (turn of the 20th century) and new (post-1965) second generation. Another important issue is whether the children of immigrants are doing better than their parents educationally and occupationally, given the structural changes in American economy and society. In light of the current political debate about immigration policy, which directly affects the children of undocumented immigrants, the course will also cover this often overlooked group. Although the course will deal with the United States as a whole, the experience of children of immigrants who have grown up in New York will also be highlighted.
