“Our Country Is Full”: Roots and Consequences of America’s 1921 Immigration Act 100 Years Later
Chair: Erika Lee, University of Minnesota
Panel: Ashley Johnson Bavery, Eastern Michigan University; Linda Gordon, New York University; Alexandra Minna Stern, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

100 years ago, the US passed the Emergency Quota Act of 1921. Together with the 1924 Immigration Act, it inaugurated an unprecedented era of immigration restriction and discrimination in immigration law. With xenophobia on the rise globally, this timely roundtable will explore the roots and the consequences of immigration restriction.

Joint with the Immigration and Ethnic History Society and the Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History.

This webinar will have live captioning provided with Otter.
