This course provides a general overview of U.S. immigration law and policy, and considers the complex dynamics of border crossing. We will examine the admission, exclusion, deportation and integration of noncitizens in the United States, and we’ll analyze the many narrative issues that emerge as migrants encounter officials from the host country. This will bring us into the realms of self-representation, translation, narrative analysis, and the challenges of representing ourselves in language with reference to both legal and literary examples. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth. You can find more information about the project at https://postdiscipline.english.ox.ac.uk/. Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
