Journal #6

For this week’s journal, focus on the reading by Prashad:

1> What are the reasons that immigrant workers are recruited to the U.S.?

2> When and where did South Asian immigrants first come to the U.S. and  why?

3> What changes in 1965 and why?

4> What role does the new Indian government play in fostering science and technology education, and why?

5> What does Prashad mean (on page 82) when he says “[w]e are good immigrants.”

In this telling of the history of South Asian immigration, what connection do you see to conversations/materials we have already talked about in class? What was already familiar to you?

Here, you have the opportunity to discuss the reading– what is interesting to you? What did you learn? What connections can you make to current events?
