About PRLS 3203: Latin@ Diasporas in the United States

Course Description: The purpose of this course is to understand the socio-historical, political and economic influences on Latinos and Latin Americans by exploring the myriad ways in which colonialism and globalization promote the development of Latino diasporic communities in the United States.  In order to understand the dynamic constructs of “Latina/o/x” identity and experience within the diasporas, the course will pay close attention to immigration and migration and its timing, the shifting dynamics of institutional inequality, prejudice, discrimination and racism over time.  The course will compare not only Latin American societies to those of the U.S., but also differences among Latino groups in different regions of the United States.
