This course is intended to provide an introduction and overview on
Latino issues.  The course will begin with a brief overview of the
histories of the major Latinos national origin groups in the U.S. The
bulk of the course will examine a number of topics and issues that
are
key to understanding contemporary Latinos; e.g., immigration,
language, education, employment, etc. The third and briefest part of
the course will build upon the previous sections by asking how the
history and current status of Latinos might influence their near-term
future, under various assumptions.
