Lecture Description

Examines a series of examples across U.S. history of people who gained citizenship, who sought unsuccessfully to gain it, and who experienced a limited version of citizenship in law or practice. This interweaves issues of gender and race with national origins and immigration status. Against the backdrop of the dreamers of today it asks who was dreaming of citizenship in the past?
