LAX 110(C) - Introduction to Latinx Studies


Credit(s): 3
MassTransfer Block Code: Humanities/Fine and Performing Arts
Knowledge of Diversity Code: KOD
This course is an interdisciplinary exploration of the major Latinx communities in the United States. The course will study the predominant US Latinx groups, such as Mexican Americans and Puerto Ricans, while incorporating the experience of groups with ties to Central America, South America, and the rest of the Caribbean. Students will engage in a critical examination of a wide selection of materials ranging from visual art, literature, film, and documentaries to historical, cultural, political, economic, and sociological texts. Students will build a foundation of knowledge from the intersection of these interdisciplinary viewpoints and academic methodologies. The course will examine colonialism in the Americas in relation to contemporary artistic representations, social identities, cultural practices, structural inequalities, and immigration patterns in an effort to place the experience of the diverse Latinx populations through this academically expansive perspective.
