Featured course: USSO 291J Narratives of Immigration

Image credit: Book cover of “Dreamers” by Yuyi Morales

How would you explain the politics of the US/Mexico border to a young child? How have contemporary writers and children’s book creators explored the topic of immigration? In this SAGES course, we will read and discuss memoirs (like Edwidge Danticat’s Brother, I’m Dying), graphic novels (like Shaun Tan’s The Arrival), novels (like Julia Alvarez’s How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents), and children’s picture books (like Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote: A Migrant’s Tale by. Duncan Tonatiuh) that present the complex stories of migration, transnational identity, and citizenship. The course will be delivered remote-synchronous.
