Latinx Studies

The concentration in Latinx Studies provides the opportunity to study Latinas/os within the U.S. sociopolitical and cultural context, as well as a framework for understanding this population’s historical transnational connections to Latin America. Courses explore the impact of U.S.-Latin American relations in shaping migration flows, as well as the impact of colonialism and war, racism, inequality, and cultural, social, and political marginalization on U.S. Latinx experiences. Our curriculum also underscores the vibrant contributions of Latinas/os in U.S. history and social life, in music, theater, film, the visual arts, literature, and popular culture.
