HIST 1802 Introduction to Latinos in U.S. History (also AMST 1802/LSP 1802/LATA 1802) (HA-AS)(HNA)
Tuesday and Thursday: 2:55-4:10
Professor Maria Cristina Garcia
This course seeks a fuller recounting of the U.S. history by remapping what we understand as “America”. We will examine traditional themes in the teaching of U.S. history – territorial expansion and empire, migration and nation building, industrialization and labor, war and revolution, and citizenship and transnationalism—but we will examine this “American experience” in a broader hemispheric context and include as actors Americanos of Spanish, Mexican, Caribbean, and Central/South American ancestries.
