Latina Historical Narratives (FGSS Gateway)
FGSS 204
Fall 2016 not offered

In this course, we will engage the historical experiences of Latinas through a range of historical and literary narratives. Using a comparative approach as well as exploring issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality, this course will address a number of themes relevant to the lived experiences of these women, including migration, labor, education, cultural negotiations, and transnational family and economic relations. We will consider questions such as: How does migration impact the cultural and gendered understandings of themselves as Latina women? How do Latinas (re)imagine the histories of Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cuban-Americans, and transnational Dominicans in the U.S.? How do Latinas challenge definitions of womanhood in their literary and historical narratives?
