New Mexico State Univer- sity is offering the Borderland a chance to take the discussion back in time, allowing for insight into contemporary discussions on immigration with a speaker se- ries,-"Arriving in America: The Challenge o'f Immigrants and Minorities in Modern American History." The series presents seven noted historians from across the country who will look at the ex- periences of several 'different im- migrant groups such as Mexican and Hispanics, the Irish, the Ital- ians, East European Jews. the Great Migration of African Ameri- cans and Asians. "Given the similarity among the experiences of Mexicans and other immigrant groups," said Andrea Orzoff, a history profes- sor in the College of Arts and Sci- ences at NMSU and speaker se- ries organizer, "I thought this would provide the opportunity for a transnational comparative discussion of immigration as an ongoing problem for American society." Orzoff also hopes to encour- age thoughtful reflection on a complex issue. "This kind of dialogue might allow us to make more useful ob- servations" about ongoing pat- terns of xenophobia and nativism, changes in American borders, and the shifting defini- tion of whiteness in modern American history," Orzoff said. The series begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31. All talks will be held in the College of Health and Social Services auditorium, ex- cept for the final talk, which will be at the Stan Fulton Center.
