LAS 201 Introduction to Latino Studies

Prerequisite: Eligibility for ENG 101  
3 credits

This class will introduce students to the fields of Latino Studies. Although a broad range of topics will be covered, there will be a focus on certain aspects of history, culture, politics, race, gender and sexuality. Students will be asked to examine how a heterogeneous and changing Latino population both shapes and is shaped by life in the United States, and specifically, in Connecticut and the East Coast. Over the course of the semester, students and instructor will also engage in conversations about the experiences of being Latino in the USA to stimulate discussions of identity, class, race and/or ethnicity, religion, gender and sexuality, migration, language, and popular culture.
