|LLAS 201 - INTRODUCTION TO LATINA/O STUDIES|
Latin@s are the fastest growing demographic group in the United States. Together they represent a dynamic and diverse array of experiences, struggles, and accomplishments. This class explores the history, characteristics, diversity, and contributions of Latin@s. Through an examination of a variety of interdisciplinary sources, including readings and films, we will explore themes such as immigration, labor, education, gender roles, family relations, community organizations, politics, and identity. Emphasis will be placed on classroom discussion of class materials to examine how race, ethnicity, class and gender have influenced the lives of people in Latin American descent and how they negotiate and assert their place in American society.
