Latin@ Histories

LSGS 314S

This course provides an introduction to the history of Latinxs (and Hispanics, a distinction in terms the course will address) in the United States. It explores the impact of various historical actors—women and men, natives and immigrants, political leaders and political dissidents, exiles and refugees—whose actions, interactions, and dynamics shaped the country and defined its character, its politics, its culture, its economics, and its social structures—in other words, its history. We will cover a broad range of themes, confront and ask difficult questions, and attempt to make sense of how Latinxs have helped make the United States what it is today.  Instructor:  Eladio Bobadilla.
