LHCS 01:595:369 LATINO HISTORY – 3 Credits

Cross-Listed: 01:512:360:01

This course will examine the process of departure and arrival--the forces pushing and pulling people from Latin America to the United States. We will also examine how "Spanish," "Latins," "Hispanics," "Latinos" adjust, integrate, assimilate, resist, and adapt to the many forces that affect their lives in the US over the last century and a half, creating new ethnic, racial and local identities in the process. By studying the experience of Latinos and Latin American immigrants with racism and discrimination, identity formation, ethnic culture, community formation, work and labor struggles, and social mobility we will map out the heterogeneous mosaic of Latin American and Caribbean diasporas in the US. The study of Latino History is a young discipline, with many gaps and grey areas. It also exists in a complex and tense dialogue (often a monologue) with "larger" anglo-centric US history. During the last two decades there has been a boom in research and writing in this field and we will be taking advantage of some of its products, although its fruits are still uneven.
