Expanded Course Description
This course analyzes Latin American-origin populations in the U.S. Latinos are one of the fastest growing populations in the U.S. (now at 17% of the national population), a significant minority population that is a numerical majority in some cities. The course will focus on issues such as the origin of “Latino” as a meaningful racial category, sources of inequality that pertain to Latinos, as well as experiences of Latinos that are marked by other features such as documented status, gender, skin color, and class status. A sizeable portion of the course will be devoted to the issue of the Mexican-origin population because the size of present-day Mexican immigrant population is unparalleled. The course pays particular attention to the diversity within the Latino population. We focus on two questions throughout the course: a) Are there common experiences or characteristics that justify the categorization of these varied groups under a single race/ethnicity? And b) What racial, class, and gender divisions exist within these groups? Emphasizing the interconnections among social processes that affect these groups, we address how categories such as national origin, race/ethnicity, class, gender, age, sexuality, and immigration status shape the lives of Latinos/as.
