This course examines the history of the two largest groups of Latin Americans living in the United States, those originating in Mexico and those originating in the Spanish Caribbean. It presents Latina/o history as a story of overlapping between Latin American and United States societies, beginning with United States conquest and territorial expansion into Spanish and Spanish American territories. It asks how, in the context of this overlapping history, the incorporation of Latin Americans as immigrants, workers, and ethnic minorities in the United States compares with the incorporation of other immigrants and of African Americans. Readings include a wide array of primary historical documents about Latina/o experiences.
