American Immigration Revisited

A four-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university teachers to examine American immigration from the 1880s to the 1980s.

Since the 1960s, changes in immigration and immigration law have influenced Americans and American domestic and foreign policy and have affected the daily lives of natives and newcomers profoundly. Immigrant groups and immigration patterns have changed along with the challenges immigrant groups face; and immigration laws and policies are part of our daily debates and media reports. The institute would bring together teachers and experts for four weeks at the Library of Congress and will explore four basic areas: American immigration part of a global phenomenon; migrations between cultures; changes in immigration law, policy, and practice; and approaches and resources for teaching immigration history. Those who complete the institute will take what they learn back to their communities, enrich their U.S. history courses and other courses that deal with immigration, and improve teaching and learning
