Latina/os in U.S. History

This course examines the history of Latina/os in the United States from the nineteenth century to the present. We will draw on interdisciplinary interpretations to examine the Latina/o experience through the lens of social justice, labor, activism, politics and government, community formation, migration/immigration, and globalization. The course is designed to provide students with a holistic understanding of the Latina/o experience through major events, known and lesser-known figures, and issues that have shaped society, history, culture, and identity. The course requires students to analyze readings, demonstrate insightful and meaningful written communication, engage in discussions in conjunction with the various units, and push forth new inquiries throughout the semester.

*Note that this class also fulfills Hist. 201!
