Latinx Identities Across the Americas
Dr. Victor Saenz and Dr. Emmet Campos Maymester
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
This interdisciplinary course introduces students to emergent research on Latinx students in K12 and higher education in the US, and through a transnational lens. We focus on a variety of topics related to identity and identity formation, especially with regard to how Latinx students cultivate and leverage positional/relational identities generally, and how educational institutions impact those identity formations. We explore these issues in relation to Mexico, and the Americas writ broadly. We ask for example, “How do representations of Mexico and its people, in media and historically, impact us here in the US, specifically with regard to identity formation in the US. We also look at the issue of masculinity and explore how it is theorized and practiced in the US and Mexico. Great for students seeking: Coursework surrounding issues of gender roles and identities, Mexican American history, migration, and immigration, anthropology, history and sociology.
