HIST 3770 Latinos and the United States, 1492-1880

HIST 3770 Latinos and the United States, 1492-1880 (also AMST 3775, LSP 3770) (HST-AS, SCD-AS) (HPE, HNA)

Tuesday and Thursday: 10:10-11:25 plus Independent Research

Professor Camille Suarez

In this course, we will answer two major questions: What is Latino history? And how should we write Latino History? We will explore these questions without attempting to cover all of Latino history before 1800. We will focus on a variety of experiences to better understand how differences in race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, and class have shaped Latino communities over time. We will read academic journal articles and books (secondary sources) and documents from the past, such as diaries, letters, court records, and maps (primary sources). Throughout the semester we will be working in groups toward creating a final project: a Latino history website.
