"Borders," wrote Primo Levi "are where wars start." But borders are also sites of cultural exchange, where bridges across cultural differences may be built. Children of Latino/a immigrants who have crossed national borders face cultural borders that they are forced to traverse everyday. This course explores the social and cultural forces shaping how Latino/a youth define themselves within an increasingly multi-cultural society. What's it like to grow up Latino/a in the United States around the turn of the millennium, a time when Latinos/as are the nation's largest and fastest growing minority? What are the consequences of speaking two languages and living between two cultures? How have US concepts of race influenced the formation of Latino/a identities? What does it mean to be Latino/a, anyway? These questions will be addressed in a seminar setting with active student participation.
