Through an interdisciplinary scholarly lens and archival research, we analyze the history of Latinx migration, immigration, and the social justice and civil rights leaders and organizations who advocated for full citizenship rights. We study artists and the spaces where Latinx art has been transformative across cultures, the nation, and international spaces. We examine the Latinx diasporic communities and trace their journeys across borders and advocacy for civil rights. Our discussions will include a history and analysis of language, art, music, folktales, and tools that shape the Latinx community. Including Latinx ingenuity, innovation, and major contributions in the sciences, humanities among other fields. Students will read an assortment of foundational humanities and social science literature on the U.S. Latinx experience as well as strengthen writing abilities, sharpen critical thinking skills, and develop archival research proficiencies.
