Historicizing Latina/os

AMST 306
Spring 2019 not offered
Course Cluster: Caribbean Studies Minor

Together we will engage the historical experiences of Latina/os in the United States: colonizations, migrations, World War II, labor organizing, responses to "Americanizations," Latina/o civil rights movements, feminist and LGBT critiques, and cultural and aesthetic productions. Focusing on Mexicans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Dominicans, and on matters of gender, race, and sexual orientation, we will consider questions such as: What global economic and political forces have shaped Latina/o populations? Where and how have various Latina/o groups settled and how have they been received? How have Latina/os contributed economically, politically, and culturally to the United States?
