Body

Courses marked with an asterisk (*) have variable topics and instructors so when a Latina/o Studies Affiliated Faculty member is teaching it, it will generally count for the Minor, however, syllabi for these courses need approval from the Minor Faculty Coordinator to count toward the requirements of the Minor. In general, courses marked with an asterisk must have at least one-third Latina/o Studies content to count toward the Minor.

Required Core Courses:

2322, Intro to Latino Studies (cross-listed as Spanish 2242)
     21037, TR 3:55-5:15PM, Caldwell 120, Theresa Delgadillo
     Course Description:
This course provides an Introduction to Latina/o Studies for those interested in learning more about the national, racial, social, and economic diversity of Latinas/os; key issues facing Latinas/os; and important topics and methods in the study of Latinas/os. Students will gain an overview of the historical and cultural experience of Latinas/os from the 19th century forward and study specific political, social, and cultural events of relevance to Latinas/os.

Some of the questions we will explore include: What defines, unites or divides Latinas/os? How have Latinas/os been viewed in the U.S.? What important political movements have enjoyed Latina/o leadership or participation? What is the significance of sexuality, gender, race, and class among Latinas/os? What kinds of literature and art have Latinas/os created? How pervasive is Latina/o influence in popular culture? How do Latinas/os fit into the U.S. mosaic?  Surveying the historical and current efforts of Latinas/os in the legal, religious, political, literary and artistic arenas will allow students to better understand and appreciate the visions of this American community.

     34197, TR 12:45-2:05PM, Hagerty Hall 46, Theresa Delgadillo
     Course Description:
Since 2000, scores of new Latina/o literary texts have emerged that take wars and migrations past and present as their setting, thoughtfully exploring the relationship between violence and mobility, belonging and brutality. Meanwhile, major debates have broken out in the U.S. and around the globe around immigration and migration. In this course, we will read Latina/o novels, short stories, poetry, and view Latina/o films that imaginatively take up these topics, speaking to contemporary audiences about these big topics through the telling of stories. We will consider the historical and imaginative aspects of these texts, unpacking the significance of war and migration in twenty-first century Latina/o literatures. We will read literature that addresses the Chicana/o, Mexican-American, Salvadoran American, Puerto Rican, Dominican American, and Peruvian American experiences. This course will include attention to:

  • Understanding Latina/o literatures
  • Developing critical frameworks for the study of literature and film
  • Reading literature critically
  • Historic and contemporary issues in migration and immigration as these relate to Latinas/os and Latin Americans
  • Communicating your ideas in discussion, writing, presentation
  • Developing skills in digital story presentations
  • Identifying and creating a research project
