AES 498C: Special Topics course titled, "Comparative Studies of Undocumented Communities".
This course is a sociological examination of the formation and meanings about concepts like (un)documented and the intersections with nationality, race, ethnicity, and gender, primarily.
This course will offer examinations across undocumented communities, i.e. UndocuLatinos, UndocuBlack, UndocuAsian and Pacific Islander, and UndocuQueer in the U.S. in spaces like work, family, education and politics, to name a few. Our meetings will ask us to consider how the structure of migrant legality shapes identity formation, relations across communities as well as institutional outcomes that have an impact on mobility, rights and sense of belonging.
