This course offers students an in-depth look at Latinx (latin ex) literary movements within the United States and perspectives of peripheral US Latinx identities in the XX and XXI centuries. The class will discuss Chicano, Puerto Rican, Dominican and Cuban cultural movements and social dynamics at length, with some discussion of other Hispanic Diasporas within the US. Students will read short stories, drama, essays and poetry (in English) in their exploration of the US Latinx canon. Music, film, podcasts and interviews will also be incorporated as important structural elements to the course. By the end of this course students should be familiar with US Latinx perspectives of ethnicity, immigration, identity, nationalism, freedom, gender, sexuality and political and social power differentials. Students will also further develop their critical reading and writing skills through assigned work.
