At Radcliffe, Héctor Tobar is at work on a nonfiction book about the profound shifts in American culture brought forth by the anti-immigrant movement. He will explore how a century of immigration policy and the evolving image of the “alien” in US culture have helped shape American notions of racial identity and “whiteness.” At the same time, Americans with Latin American roots are creating a collective identity formed from narratives of empire, migration, and inequality.
