COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course explores the relationship between citizenship and racial ideologies in the Americas. Framed by theoretical analyses of race and ethnicity, this course uses historical essays, biographies, novels and films to examine the lived experience of race and blackness in Latin America and the United States. Focusing on the different meanings attributed to blackness in the Americas, the course ultimately aims to compare the diverse racial, class and gendered experiences of U.S. Latinos with those of ethnic and racialized groups in Latin America.
