Readings in Latina or Latino History
Stephen Pitti
W 9.25-11.15 HGS 117
Spring 2014 
 
A reading of the historical works that focus on Latino communities in the United States. We focus particular attention on Mexican American, Puerto Rican, and Cuban American communities, and we look at topics such as racial identity, border conflict, 1960s activism, patters of residency and migration, transnationality and citizenship, labor struggles and class formation, and gender and sexuality. Readings bring together scholarship from several disciplines and emphasize both the critical importance of this developing field and its contemporary challenges.
