In the early 1900s, many people believed that eugenics, or “race science,” was a progressive solution to social problems. Followers of eugenics argued that protecting “racial purity” was essential in creating a healthy nation. In the United States and around the world, eugenics had a profound impact on beliefs and policies towards immigration that are still with us today. This interactive session will model how to set up a classroom inquiry into these difficult issues, creating space for diverse opinions while maintaining a compassionate and courageous dialogue. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of eugenics and immigration policies of the early 20th century, and their impact on contemporary issues of global migration.
