Recent years has seen a wealth of new scholarship on the evolution
of citizenship in the United States.  Historians, anthropologists,
and legal scholars have explored the shifting criteria (race,
gender, class, culture, religion, ideology) that have produced such
categories as "citizen," "aliens," "nationals," and "illegal
aliens."  This course will explore important works on citizenship
and immigration published in the past two decades.  In doing so, we
will situate Latinos' historical experiences within the broader
framework of U.S. territorial expansion in the Caribbean, North
America, and the Pacific during the 19th and 20th centuries.
