Latin American Studies | Latino Immigrants & U.S. Society
L526 | 2961 | McConnell, E.
This course examines Latino immigrants to the U.S. with a focus on
the frequent conflict between these immigrants and U.S. society.
Major topics include the comparison of Mexican-American, African-
American, and Anglo-American workers in the rural South and the urban
North; an assessment of how well assimilation theory fits the Latino
experience; and the aspects of Latino culture and circumstances that
may hinder full participation in U.S. institutions.
