This course explores the diversity of Latino and Latina experiences
in the United States and its territories since the early-1800s.
Particular emphasis will be given to Mexican-American, Puerto Rican,
Cuban-American and Dominican-American experiences in the U.S. We
will also examine the experiences of Central and South American
communities in the United States. Topics will include race,
colonization, imperialism, migration, cultural transformations,
education, gender, language, identity, nationalism, and ethnic
political mobilization. Most classes will consist of lectures,
discussions, and an occasional film.
