Texas Talks Redefining the Immigrant South

Event Date & Time: Tuesday, October 19, 2021 7pm–8pm CT

Redefining the Immigrant South: A Conversation with Dr. Uzma Quraishi

Guest Speaker
Dr. Uzma Quraishi
Zoom (online)

Blending Cold War, Southern, and urban history, Dr. Uzma Quraishi’s research looks at the history of South Asian migration to Houston, Texas. This migration of Indians and Pakistanis pre-dated the 1965 immigration reform, and it expanded after the milestone law. Dr. Quraishi examines the experiences of middle-class, urbanized Indians and Pakistanis who sought higher education in a city transitioning out of Jim Crow. In this talk and in her book Redefining the Immigrant South (UNC Press, 2020), Dr. Quraishi explores the interplay of race, place, ethnicity and class over time in a changing region and nation.
