Liberal Arts Building (CLA), 0.128 305 23RD ST E, Austin, Texas 78712

Sociologist Rick Baldoz presents a talk titled "The Strange Career of the Filipino 'National': Race, Immigration, and the Bordering of U.S. Empire." Baldoz explores the incorporation of Filipino immigrants in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century, focusing on the interplay of colonialism, racial boundaries and citizenship policy.

Baldoz is an assistant professor in the sociology department at Oberlin College. He is the author of the award winning book "The Third Asiatic Invasion: Empire and Migration in Filipino America, 1898-1946." He is currently working on a book project about the 1965 Hart Celler Immigration Act, examining this historical legislation against the backdrop of Cold War politics, anti-colonial upheaval and domestic civil rights mobilization.
