SOC 189: Race and Immigration (AFRICAAM 190, CSRE 189, SOC 289)

In the contemporary United States, supposedly race-neutral immigration laws have racially-unequal consequences. Immigrants from Mexico, Central America, and the Middle East are central to ongoing debates about who's includable, and who's excludable, from American society. These present-day dynamics mirror the historical forms of exclusion imposed on immigrants from places as diverse as China, Eastern Europe, Ireland, Italy, Japan, and much of Africa. These groups' varied experiences of exclusion underscore the long-time encoding of race into U.S. immigration policy and practice. Readings and discussions center on how immigration law has become racialized in its construction and in its enforcement over the last 150 years.

How do I translate my interests and capacities into a career in public service and social impact? This course will introduce you to a wide range of roles that help shape public policy and civic life, including government, nonprofits, social enterprise and the arts. It can be taken for one or two units. For one unit, you participate in a weekly, interactive speaker series designed to give you a sense for what different public service careers are like. Each week, guests describe their organizations and roles, highlight key intellectual issues and policy challenges, discuss their career paths, and describe skills crucial for the job. For a second unit, you participate additionally in a more intimate weekly session designed to help you translate this knowledge into action. You will identify roles and organizations that might be a good match for you, build your network through informational interviewing, receive career coaching, and acquire the tools you need to launch your job or internship search. This course is open to all students, not only those studying political science, public policy and other social sciences, but also those in the arts, humanities, sciences, or engineering. Course content will be relevant to both students soon entering the job market and those facing choices about courses of study and internships. It is co-sponsored by the Haas Center for Public Service, the School of Humanities and Sciences, and Stanford in Government.nnStudents taking the course for one unit must enroll in the Tuesday lecture, and students taking the course for two units must enroll in both the Tuesday lecture and the Thursday section.
