HUM 102 - Introduction to Latinx and Latin American Studies

Introduction to Latinx and Latin American Studies This course will focus on geopolitical and political economy issues within an historical perspective that help us to understand the complex relationship between the United States and Latin America, and ways in which they shape and reshape identities, culture, and citizenship. How do these histories shape the lives of Latinx communities in the United States? What counter narratives and forms of resistance do Chicanx, Latinx, indigenous and people of African descent from Latin America engage as they challenge these geopolitical forces? This course will have a research component where macro-historical processes are understood from a place-based perspective tied to local communities. (Offered spring semester.) 3 credits
