Class Subtitle
Description In this course we will examine the construction of race and ethnicity in Latina/o literature by examining key texts by individuals from varying Latina/o groups who live in the United States. This course will examine both how US-American identity shapes Latina/o notions and constructions of race and how the authors’ connections with Latin American and the Caribbean do the same. In the end, we will explore race and ethnicity from a hemispheric perspective in order to inquire as to its specific manifestation in Latina/o literature and culture. All readings, discussions and assignments are in English.
