U43 IS 307Latin American Migrations3.0 Units
Description:Latin America has been, historically, a region defined by its migrations. Throughout its history, Latin America has received waves of immigrants from around the world and has been the site both of internal migrations (country to city and country to country) and a considerable diaspora that has created new communities in the United States and Europe. Through the reading of scholarship, fiction, film, art and memoirs, this class seeks to study the cultural impact that different waves of migration have had both on the establishment of political and imaginary borders and in the constitution of new national, regional and transnational identities. The class will approach case studies that encompass the effect of internal migrations in the region (such as the racial politics of Andean immigration to Argentina), the social redefinitions of Latin American countries due to new waves of immigrants (such as the increasing Asian immigration to Panama), the articulation of a Latin America in exile and the construction of new "Latino" identities in the United States and Europe. Through these case studies, students will not only get snapshots of different "Latin American Crossings." The class will also tackle the question of new, fluid notions of Latin American culture and identity, as well as changing notions of race, ethnicity, class and gender, as they are being redefined in the contemporary world.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
