A History of Immigration Control:
Contesting Nation, Citizenship and Race in America

Webinar Leader

Kelly Lytle Hernandez

Associate Professor of History, UCLA

Webinar Details

The issue of immigration control has become a lightning rod in American political discourse. At stake is how we define ourselves in relation to each other and to the state, which is perhaps why many Americans across the political spectrum feel so passionately about the issue. Join us as Professor Kelly Lytle Hernandez of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) unravels the complicated history of immigration control in the United States, and in doing so sheds light on 20th-century contests over identity and belonging.
