Writing Immigration : Scholars and Journalists in Dialogue Paperback / softback
Edited by Marcelo M. Suarez-Orozco, Vivian S. Louie, Roberto Suro
Bringing nuance, complexity, and clarity to a subject often seen in black and white, "Writing Immigration" presents a unique interplay of leading scholars and journalists working on the contentious topic of immigration.
In a series of powerful essays, the contributors reflect on how they struggle to write about one of the defining issues of our time - one that is at once local and global, familiar and uncanny, concrete and abstract.
Highlighting and framing central questions surrounding immigration, their essays explore topics including illegal immigration, state and federal mechanisms for immigration regulation, enduring myths and fallacies regarding immigration, immigration and the economy, immigration and education, the adaptations of the second generation, and more.
Together, these writings give a clear sense of the ways in which scholars and journalists enter, shape, and sometimes transform this essential yet unfinished national conversation.
