This course will offer an assortment of rubrics for understanding the interconnections between diverse Latina/o communities and also the differences that sometimes divide them. Students will explore the many methodologies of Latina/o Studies by taking the opportunity to meet and learn from scholars across disciplines (including history, sociology, literary studies, and more) engaged in this field of study. The class will consist of a series of lectures/projects designed in conjunction with scholars, activists and cultural practitioners working in different areas of Latino Studies at the University of Michigan and beyond.
