Latina/os in the U.S.
Latina/os are the largest minority group in the United States. In this course we will analyze the Latina/o experience in the U.S. with a special focus on migration, incorporation, and strategies for economic and social empowerment. Stressing the multiplicity of the U.S. Latina/o community, we will draw comparative lessons from Cuban-American, Puerto Rican, Chicano/Mexican, and Central American patterns of economic participation, political mobilization, and cultural integration. 3 hr. lect.
