Expanded Course Description
Chicana/os (Mexican Americans) and Latina/os have lived and worked in what is now the United States since before the founding of the country. During this time, they have produced literary texts and critical works designed to document their experiences as racialized subjects and their changing place in U.S. culture. By focusing on novels and short fiction by such authors as Sandra Cisneros, Junot Diaz, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Ernesto Quiñones, this introductory course will consider how issues of identity have shaped Chicana/o and Latina/o literature and culture, concentrating particularly on the following questions: Who are Chicana/os and Latina/os, and what have been their experiences in the United States? What histories and politics have shaped these categories, and how have they changed over time? What role do issues of gender, race, labor, migration, and national identity play in Chicana/o and Latina/o literature and culture?

In addition to being Arts and Letters group-satisfying, this course also fulfills the UO multicultural requirement, category B: Identity, Pluralism, and Tolerance because of its engagement with the changing nature of Chicana/o and Latina/o identities, their connections to histories of labor and migration, and their place in U.S. society.
