Foreign Contract Labor and the Rise of American Immigration Control

KEY 2120
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 12:00 PM

Join us for a talk by Hidetaka Hirota, on Wednesday, Nov 7, 2018.

Hirota will discuss his current book project, a work that examines the issue of labor in 19th century American and the intersections between migration, capitalism, state power, and law. Hirota will touch on topics such as the transnational importation of foreign laborers to America, organized labor's opposition to the practice, and the evolution of federal alien contract labor law, which eventually led to the passage of the Immigration Act of 1924.
