Course Description

Introduction to Latina/o/xs History is general and broad survey of the historical and cultural experiences of Latinos/Latinas in the United States. Through readings, lectures, film/documentaries, and class discussion we will examine the varied histories of Latinos/as with emphasis directed toward, primarily, Puerto Ricans and Cuban- and Mexican-Americans. We will take a chronological, thematic, comparative, and, at times, a contemporary approach in understanding how imperialism, im/migration, gender, race and ethnicity, cultural production, “Americanization,” and the concept of the Latinidad/es affects the historical and lived experiences of Latina/o/xs.
