    What does it mean to be an American? Who may become an American? In this seminar, participants will explore these questions as they consider the history and contemporary realities of immigration in the United States. We will consider how the choices and actions of immigrants have shaped ideas about freedom and democracy and influenced what it means to be American. The seminar will highlight the experiences of Chinese Americans from the 1800s to the present and raise questions about tensions between race, democracy, and citizenship.
