This class focusses on the intellectual development, evolution, methodological contributions, and currently central issues surrounding Latino Studies. This class is structured to represent the interdisciplinary nature of the study of Puerto Rican, Mexican, Chicana/os, Cuban, Caribbean, Central American, and Latin American communities in the US. In this case, the class tries to provide a rubric for understanding not only the interconnections between diverse Latina/o communities but also the socio-political, geographical and economical differences that sometimes divide them. This course will expose students to core knowledge about Latina/o histories and communities as well as the various disciplinary tools through which Latina/o Studies is elaborated including literary and historical studies, studies of immigration and citizenship, religious studies, as well as cultural and media studies. As a true interdisciplinary “introduction” to the study of Latina/os in the U.S., the pedagogical aim of this course is to help graduate students develop the background knowledge, theoretical language and methodological skills needed to analyze the histories, cultural production, and material realities of Latina/os in the U.S. as well as to build an intellectual support system within the University of Michigan, as well as nationally for a positive research, and publishing agenda.
