HIS f314K • HISTORY OF MEXICAN AMERS IN US
8:30 AM-10:00 AM
This course examines the history of Mexicans/Mexican Americans/Chicana/os in the United States from the U.S.-Mexican conflict in what is now the Southwestern United States to the present. We will attempt to understand the past through an interdisciplinary lens - through art, literature, film, poetry, geography, economics and revisionist histories. We will focus on understanding how these histories influence contemporary Chicano/Chicana life and experience, especially since the development of the Chicano Movement on the late 1960s and early 1970s. Partially fulfills legislative requirement for American history.
