Semester 2, 2011 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Vek Lewis

Latino cultural activism emerged in response to the experiences of exclusion and invisibility faced by Latin American-origin people who have, over time, relocated to the US, frequently in search of the 'American Dream'. This history informs the questions raised by contemporary Latino Studies and subjects. The USA's large 'ethnic minority', Latinos, never a totality, show a plurality of identifications. This course uncovers, examining cultural products and social research, the complexity of that increasingly visible transnational collectivity known as Latino USA.
