Expanded Course Description
Through using the state of Oregon as a primary focus along with California, this class will look historically at the experience of Mexican farmworkers in the United States. Our understanding of the historical experience of Mexican workers will be framed by looking at how the United States used territorial control and immigration policy to regulate labor flows, wages, and the politics of belonging in the United States. We will also explore how Mexican migrants have brought U.S. culture back to their communities and created things like "Highland Hip Hop" in Michoacan. While Mexican farmworker lives have certainly been strongly influenced by the larger structural forces of immigration law and economic policy, individuals and groups have organized to improve their working and living conditions and to end racism. The history of movements such as the United Farmworkers (UFW) in California, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) in the Midwest and Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United(PCUN) of Oregon are an important part of the farmworker story. In this class we will examine the structure and labor relations of farm labor as well as looking in depth at farmworker movements and their struggles. Introductory social science course recommended.
