This first-year seminar introduces students to the historical challenges faced by people of Mexican descent in the United States. We will discuss the social, economic, and political changes that influenced the day-to-day life of Mexicans/Mexican Americans. To organize the class, we will question the meaning of a racialized Mexican identity in the United States. This class will highlight the racial, class, gender, and sexual diversity within the Mexican-American community. We will consider how different groups of Mexicans have historically understood these ideas and their relationships to other Americans and other Latino groups. Part of our work will also consider Chicano history’s political and intellectual underpinnings as an academic discipline.
