HST 239 History of Latinos in the United States

3 Credit(s) DIII V
This course examines the history of the different Latino populations of the United States, beginning with U.S. expansion in the nineteenth century. We explore the history of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans and Central Americans in the United States in the context of U.S. relations with the sending countries (Mexican-American War, Spanish-American War, Dominican and Central American occupations), and changes over time in U.S. society and economy. The historical construction of race and ethnicity, gender, and changing forms of identities is also examined. Three lecture hours per week. Not open to students who have received credit for HIS380.
