AMST 260 United States Latino Literature and Cultural Studies

This course will explore how Latinos have creatively represented their individual and collective experience in the United States. Literature will be the primary creative medium we look at, but some supplemental attention may be given to film and music. To reflect the variety and complexity of the U.S. Latino experience we will look at representative work from the Chicano (Mexican American), Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, and Salvadoran or Guatemalan communities.
