Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander Voices in Higher Education Symposium: Lunch & Book Talk
"Redefining the Immigrant South"
Published in 2020 by the University of North Carolina Press in their New Directions in Southern Studies series, Redefining the Immigrant South examines the significance of immigration from South Asia as a window into the post-Jim Crow American South. The book reframes our understanding of twentieth century migration, the changing character of the U.S. South, and the tangled politics of race, class, and ethnicity in the United States. Quraishi takes a long view of the immigration process, bridging the global with the local—from the state-driven formation of migration linkages overseas during the Cold War to the final years of immigrants’ lives in Houston’s suburbs.
