As the U.S. has been dramatically transformed by the massive immigration of the past half century, widespread fears and anxieties have emerged — that immigrants will have trouble fitting in, will challenge or undermine core cultural beliefs, and spell the end of the dominance of existing advantaged groups. The lecture focuses on several common fears and anxieties that have been especially salient recently: about unauthorized immigrants, about immigrants and crime, language, and religion, and about racial change.
