HIST 286 Spring 2013 Latina/o History From 1846 to the Present (D)

Cross Listed as LATS286
This course examines the formation of Latina/o communities in the United States from 1846 to the present. Formed through conquest, immigration, and migration, these communities reflect the political and economic causes of migration, U.S. foreign policies, the connections between the United States and the countries of origin, and economic conditions in the United States. People's migration to the United States has been mediated through labor recruitment, immigration and refugee policies, and social networks. Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Dominicans, as well as more recent immigrants from Central and South American countries, then become racialized populations in the United States. This EDI course examines the racial dynamics at play in the formation of Latina/o communities, as well as the impact of dominant U.S. hierarchies of race, gender and class on the economic incorporation of Latinas and Latinos.
