About this product
- DescriptionIn the current geopolitical climate in which unaccompanied children cross the border in record numbers, and debates on the topic swing violently from pole to pole the subject of immigration demands invative inquiry. In The Rhetorics of US Immigration, some of the most prominent and prolific scholars in immigration studies come together to discuss the many facets of immigration rhetoric in the United States.The Rhetorics of US Immigration provides readers with an integrated sense of the rhetorical multiplicity circulating among and about immigrants. Whereas extant literature on immigration rhetoric tends to focus on the media, this work extends the conversation to the immigrants themselves, among others. A collection whose own eclecticism highlights the complexity of the issue, The Rhetorics of US Immigration is t only a study in the language of immigration but also a frank discussion of who is doing the talking and what it means for the future.From questions of activism, authority, and citizenship to the influence of Hollywood, the LGBTQ community, and the church, The Rhetorics of US Immigration considers the myriad venues in which the American immigration question emerges and the interpretive framework suited to account for it.Along with the editor, the contributors are Claudia Anguia, Karma R. Chavez, Terence Check, Jay P. Childers, J. David Cisneros, Lisa M. Corrigan, D. Robert DeChaine, Anne Teresa Demo, Dina Gavrilos, Emily Ironside, Christine Jasken, Yazmin Lazca-Pry, Michael Lechuga, and Alessandra B. Von Burg.
