CHILATST 109: GENTE: An incubator for transforming national narratives

Nearly 80,000 individuals who identify as Latino or Latina, turn 18 every MONTH in the United States alone.. Yet despite the rapid growth in numbers and a presence on this continent that predates the country itself, Latina/os are still spoken of largely through the lens of immigration, and primarily during the window of election seasons. This course will design, engage, and deliver human centered strategies and relational activations for transforming national narratives while advancing well being. Our core questions include:n - Who defines a people, and who is involved in definition making? n - What are the ways to engage story beyond marketing concepts into a platform for human connection? n - How does one ¿hack¿ a national narrative?n - How do relational activations like pop up dinners and listening parties create personal doorways for transformation that can be scaled without sacrificing quality?nnPlease note, GENTE is more than an identity-based course. It is initiative that designs blueprints for change-making across identities by curating stories, values and common histories of individuals into a shared future of well being.

CHILATST 110: Sabias Creadoras y Activistas: Chicana/Latina Ways of Knowing

(Open only to Undergraduates.) Chicana feminists have critically challenged masculine nationalist discourse as well as European and North American feminism. Through this course, we examine the diversity in thinking and methodology that defines these discourses from interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives to understand the differential access to power experienced by Chicanas. How intersections of gender, race, class, and sexuality are informed and practiced by everyday lived experiences such as family life, religion/spirituality, education, and work; political/civic engagement is also central to this course.

CHILATST 173: Mexican Migration to the United States (AMSTUD 73, HISTORY 73, HISTORY 173)

This class examines the history of Mexican migration to the United States. In the United States we constantly hear about Obama¿s immigration plan, the anti-immigrant laws in Arizona, and the courage of DREAM Activists; in Mexico news sources speak about the role of remittances, the effect of deportations, and the loss of life at the border. Unfortunately, few people truly understand the historical trends in these migratory processes, or the multifaceted role played by the United States in encouraging individuals to head there. Moreover, few people have actually heard the opinions and voices of migrants themselves. This course seeks to provide students with the opportunity to place migrants¿ experiences in dialogue with migratory laws as well as the knowledge to embed current understandings of Latin American migration in their meaningful historical context.

CHILATST 180E: Introduction to Chicanx/Latinx Studies (CSRE 180E)

This course draws on intersectional and interdisciplinary approaches to introduce students to the range of issues, experiences, and methodologies that form the foundation of Latina/o/x studies. By considering the relationship between the creation of ¿Latinx¿ and ¿American¿ identities, students will critically reconsider the borders that constitute the U.S. as a political and cultural formation. The course balances depth and breadth in its study of the variety of perspectives and experiences that come to be associated with U.S. Latinxs. Thus, we will analyze the histories of predominant U.S. Latinx sub-groups, such as Mexicans/Chicanxs and Puerto Ricans, while also incorporating considerations of the ways in which broader populations with ties to Central America, South America, and the Caribbean play crucial roles in constituting U.S. Latinx identities. Topics include the U.S./Mexico border and the borderlands; (im)migration and diaspora; literary and cultural traditions; music and expressive practices; labor and structural inequality; social movements; Latinx urbanism; gender and sexuality; political and economic shifts; and inter- and intra-group relations. Sources include a range of social science and humanities scholarship.
