AMST 2321 - Latinx Fiction and Film


This course explores the diverse and also converging experiences of Latinos in the US. We will read contemporary novels and poetry by Latinx authors from different Latinx groups (Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Central American and South American). We will discuss reasons for migration, concepts of the “border” and the impact of bilingualism on group identity. We will view films that depict the Latinx experience in the US.
