Making America New: Patricia Ehrkamp

For the first time in over a decade, Congress is considering legislation that would drastically reform immigration in America. The issue, however, is highly contentious with any number of interests hoping to shift the bill one way or another. Even once all of the debates are said and done, it's still not clear whether or not such legislation will actually become the law of the land guiding America's relationship with immigration in the future. 

If you're curious as to why immigration is such a contentious yet crucial issue, then perhaps Geography professor Patricia Ehrkamp's course this fall, "Geography 221 - Immigrant America," is for you. 
In this podcast, Professor Ehrkamp discusses how her class will guide students through an examination of immigration's storied legacy in America while also exploring the ways in which immigrants are still reshaping the country to this day.
