This course is a general introduction to the experience of Latinas/os in the United States, focusing on historical, literary, and cultural aspects. Our class will be framed by a historical analysis of Mexican-Americans or Chicanas/os, Puerto Ricans/Nuyoricans, Cuban-Americans, Dominican-Americans, and Central Americans in the U.S. Historical readings will be accompanied by the discussion of novels, autobiographies, poems, and films. We will be focusing on issues of race, ethnicity, racism, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic class, religion, education, and language. We will pay especially close attention to the intersections between U.S. Latina/o experience and that of African Americans, Native Americans, and Jewish Americans. Some film screenings will occur in class. Students will be required to see additional videos in the library.
