This course explores the political, social, cultural, and economic development of
Latinx communities in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and elsewhere across the United States. By exploring relational and comparative histories of Latinas/os, we address such themes as migration, labor, race, and empire. We also examine the movement of Latinas and Latinos within and between the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean. We use a variety of
primary and secondary sources and texts to illuminate various dimensions of the Latino past.
