Register for May 2019: Understanding Latino Migration

1 course, 3 weeks, 3 credits.

This May, I’ll be teaching a hands-on class that focuses on emigration from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to the United States. The course begins with the 1980s, when the foundation for much of today’s migration was put into place. We then move on to the 1990s and 2000s to consider the policies that expanded the flow of both labor migrants and refugees. Finally, we consider North Carolina’s diverse Latino population. What are the consequences of immigrant travel for Latinos’ health, well-being and integration into North Carolina?

This class requires no prior knowledge and is appropriate for any curious-minded learner.

Students can sign up at the graduate or undergraduate level. Enrollment is now open.
