The U.S. Latino/a seminar is the final course of the U.S. Latino/a Literature minor and requires students to synthesize the literary knowledge and critical skills they acquired. The course offers an in-depth study of a particular topic, author, or intellectual theme. The topic will be chosen by the individual professor to reflect the interdisciplinary emphasis of the minor. Drawing on skills acquired in the concentration, students will participate in contemporary debates on street literature, bilingual aesthetics, ethics, gender and sexuality, literature and law, to produce a final paper that includes original research.
