130. HNRS 126W: The Peopling of New York City: Seminar 2

Contact:Ross Wheeler
Abstract:During Seminar 2, University Scholars investigate the role of immigration and
migration in shaping New York City’s identityСpast, present, and future.
Seminar topics include: the factors that have driven and drawn people to New
York since the 17th century; the different ways that religion, race, gender,
and ethnicity have shaped immigrant encounters with the city; the formation and
social organization of immigrant communities in such neighborhoods as the Five
Points, the Lower East Side, Harlem, Little Italy, Chinatown, Astoria, and
Flushing; the impact of successive waves of newcomers on urban culture and
politics; and the continuing debate over assimilation and Americanization.
Extensive reading and writing assignments are enriched by visits to archives
and other important sites.
