Course Description

This course unpacks the complex historical roots and contexts of Latinx communities in the U.S., with a focus on the long twentieth century. Students will investigate historical forces of colonization, 6 displacement, and racism to which Latinx people have been subjected in the U.S., as well as Latinx movements that have been built in response to these forces. The course engages primary source materials and sociological concepts to explore links between the past and present. It includes off-campus ventures in which students engage with Latinx communities and histories in the Boston area.
