Description: This course will focus on the wide variety of trajectories and circumstances that brought Chinese persons to sites throughout the Americas—e.g. the US, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Peru—in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the vastly different realities that awaited them in different locations and in different eras. Together, we will look at the historic socio-economic factors that spurred these voyages, the experiences of those who underwent them, and the lasting impacts Chinese communities have had on the locations in which they arrived. We will also explore the development of immigration-related legislation in the Americas and its impacts on migrant and minority communities. Readings will be drawn from a variety of non-fictional sources (in English).
