Born in the wake of struggles for social justice and educational equity of the 1960s, Latina/o Studies is a critical practice as variegated as the group it seeks to represent. Latina/o Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Puerto-Rican, Chicano, Cubano, Caribbean, Central-American, and Latin-American communities in the U.S. Latina/o Studies deploys the disciplines of history, literary studies, anthropology, sociology, political science, media studies, and law among others in its exploration of the lives and histories of these communities. Latina/o Studies offers a rubric for understanding not only the interconnections among these diverse communities but also the differences that sometimes divide them. This course will introduce students to the many practices of Latina/o Studies, by giving them the opportunity to meet and learn more about scholars engaged in this field of study. The class will consist of a series of lectures and projects designed in conjunction with scholars, activists, and cultural practitioners working in different areas of Latina/o Studies at the University of Michigan and beyond.
