Ethics Short Answer Questions

In “How U.S. Policies Created Immigration,” the historian Aviva Chomsky suggests that we should examine immigration as a historical and structural issue that is heavily influenced by colonial relationships and economic ties between countries. She writes, “Every immigrant comes for individual reasons. But patterns of immigration have structural and historical causes” (121). For Chomsky, a more sophisticated examination
of migration and immigration takes a look at such patterns and relationships. Explain the significance of historical and structural forces that influence migration. How do colonial and economic ties help to explain why people migrate? Be sure to offer specific examples in the text with respect to colonization and economics. For example, you might want to reference the examples of Puerto Rico and the Philippines.
2. In “Arrival and History,” the sociologists Pawan Dhingra and Robyn Magalit Rodriguez examine the structural and historical factors that influence immigrant flows from Asia to the United States. Briefly explain the significance of these factors in at least one key period: the “old immigration period,” “the intermediate period 1943-1964,” or the “post-1965 immigration period.” How do historical and structural forces help to explain Nwhy different Asian ethnic groups migrate at the times that they do? Be sure to focus
on at least one of the designated immigration periods and on at least two different Asian ethnic immigrant groups. For example, you might choose to focus on U.S. ties with Japan and the Philippines during the “intermediate period.” Be sure to provide specific details and don’t hesitate to focus on the roles of gender and the “paradoxical moments of capitalist inclusion and national exclusion” in immigrant flows (42).
3. What did you find most compelling and/or objectionable about any part of the assigned texts in this session, and why? Your response should aim to shed new light on the text and/or on your perspectives. As always, be sure to reference specific passages from our assigned texts.
4. Our previous reading focused on a broad overview of Asian America. This session narrows our focus a little more. In the book chapter entitled “Colonial Legacies,” the scholar Anthony Ocampo offers an in-depth overview of the history and legacies of Spanish and American  colonialism in the Philippines and its impacts on the contemporary lives of Filipino Americans.
He asserts that “four centuries of Western colonial influence left indelible imprints on the economic, political, and cultural landscape of modern-day Philippine society” (15). Explain this colonial influence that Ocampo examines. How have colonial relationships between the Philippines and the United States shaped migration and other experiences? Be sure to provide
specific details in Ocampo’s chapter, such as the role of an Americanized school system, economic exploitation, labor and class inequalities, legal status, the U.S. Navy, government corruption, and U.S. immigration reform.
5. The short story “Dead Stars” was published in 1925 by Paz Márquez-Benítez (1894-1983). During her career as a writer, she wrote a number of fictional pieces that examined the role of Spanish and American imperialism in the Philippines and elsewhere. Márquez-Benítez was part of the
first generation born and educated entirely under American tutelage, and her story, “Dead Stars,” is often cited as a pivotal moment in Philippine literature since it earned her the respect of readers in the Philippines and the United States. Although “Dead Stars” can be read as a love
story, a deeper analysis about empire and colonialism can be had. Examine the story “Dead Stars” in the context of the colonial legacies discussed by Anthony Ocampo. How do you think Márquez-Benítez uses the love story to comment on colonialism and Philippine independence? Refrain from seeking “answers” through analyses that you might find online.
Take intellectual risks and be sure to examine specific passages in the text to formulate your argument and analyses. Feel free to focus on characterization, plots development, literary devices (i.e., dialogue, symbolism, imagery, similes, metaphors, flashbacks, writing style).
6. This prompt gives you the opportunity to discuss your own questions, critiques, analyses, and/or general commentary and interests.

Your response should aim to shed new light on the text and/or on your perspectives. As always, be sure to reference specific passages from our assigned texts.
