AMST 252 - Arab American Experience


This course will be an introduction to the Arab migration to the USA. It will look at the historical events which led to the migrations and the historical and contemporary incentives for this today. We will explore the topic in an interdisciplinary manner. Understanding the socio/economic/political/religious and cultural reasons for immigration. The issues for Arab immigrants in the last half of the 20th century will be an important aspect of the course as they have again experienced increased discrimination similar to those who arrived at the end of the 19th and early 20th century. We will discuss their experiences, efforts to adjust and contributions to the mosaic of U.S. society.
