Latina Narratives: Spring 2020 Graduate and Undergraduate Course

Filed under Academic & Research, Opportunities on January 6, 2020.
Latina Narratives (R 6-8; 3 Credits):
WST4930-Section 49EG
WST6935-Section 65EG
In this course, we will explore how Latinx women navigate citizenship and belonging in the United States as represented in the literary narratives of Latinx women. Given the historical anti-immigrant discourse that has existed in this country and which has targeted Latinx populations in particular ways, how do Latinx women (re)define citizenship and belonging for themselves. We will focus on literary narratives representing various Latinx groups in order to also explore how the particular historical backgrounds of Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cuban-Americans, Dominican Americans, and Peruvian Immigrants, and their respective experiences of (im)migration to the United States influence their experiences of citizenship and belonging.  Furthermore, we will use an intersectional feminist approach in our analysis, looking at how race, gender, sexuality, and class, intersect to construct national identities.
