This course is a survey of the history of peoples of Latin American and Hispanic-Caribbean descent in the United States from the sixteenth century to the present. 

We will learn from the distinct ethnic, racial, and cultural forms that Latinos either preserved from their homelands or produced in the US mainland. We will analyze the varied experiences of Latinos and Latin American immigrants as they transition to and become part of everyday life in the United States.

All of this will be done with a wide array of audiovisual sources like graphic novels, music and film!
