Course Description

This course seeks to develop a student's understanding of Mexican American/ Chicano culture in the United States. We will begin with the anthropological debate over the concept of Mexican American culture. After situating the role of anthropology in the study of Mexican-origin groups an overview of Mexican American history and culture will follow. We will then examine other topics, including: immigration, ethnicity, Chicano-Mexican relations, agricultural workers, U.S.-Mexico trade relations, and schooling.
