Americans Across Borders: Latino Histories in Hemispheric Perspective
HIST 319
Fall 2007
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: LAST 319

This advanced seminar will trace the history of Latin American and Caribbean migrations from the Southern Americas to the United States, and their role in nation-making in the host country. While focusing on the late 19th and 20th centuries, it grounds the study of cultural formations in colonial backgrounds, shifting borderlands, emergent discourses of race, class and nation, and evolving U.S.-Latin American relations since the independence era. Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican and other communities of origin will be studied in the context of the framing of contemporary "Latino" identities and movements, and their regional variations within the United States.
