The aim of this course is to introduce the historical and contemporary experiences of Latina/o/x immigrants and their descendants in the United States. We will draw from multiple disciplines to explore varied U.S. Latina/o/x experiences and conceptualizations across national origin groups, immigrant generations, and time. Readings and discussions will focus on themes including historical migration, colonization, and imperialism; contemporary experiences of immigration and deportation; interrracial relations between Latina/o/xs and others; the racialization of Latina/o/xs; undocumented youth and education; racial identity formation; language use, and other relevant topics.
