Class Details

Considering “community” as a contested terrain, we will begin with an exploration of what we mean by “community.” Can the term encompass both the unity and the diversity within Latina/o communities? Focusing on Puerto Ricans and Mexican-Americans, topics will include the construction of ethnic communities, the struggle for civil rights, labor movements, and the social movements of the late 1960s and the 1970s. In addition to the unity these efforts represented as Latinos and Latinas confronted the challenges presented by the larger society, we will also address the dynamics of race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality within these communities and movements.
