Special Projects in Latina/o/x/e Studies Winter 2024

Class Details

This course will introduce some key readings of the field of Latinx Studies, with a focus on interdisciplinary perspectives and various methodological approaches. The class will be situated in 1960s and 1970s social movement organizing. Students will reflect on critical dialogues and debates through in-class discussions of selected readings. Students should expect to bring or develop a project in Latinx Studies. This can look like an annotated bibliography, a thesis proposal, a video, a poem with reflection, a thesis chapter draft, etc., or a 10-page final paper or other equivalent product. There will be two rounds of sharing. Students will present their final project idea during the first half of the course. Students will also present their works in progress of their project in Latinx Studies near the end of the course.
