Students will understand the formation of racial and class hierarchies within U.S. Latina/o communities; the processes of (international) migration; gendered hierarchies and responses to sexism; and the complexities of U.S. Latina/o identity. Lectures are supplemented with discussion days in which students respond to readings under the guidance of a graduate teaching assistant.
