This minor explores Latin American and Latinx political and cultural theory and practice in both historical and contemporary contexts throughout the Americas. The term “Latin American,” for the purposes of this minor, refers to Mexico, Central America, South America and the insular Caribbean. “Latinx,” pronounced “La-TEEN-x, is a gender-neutral term for referring to people of Latin American descent living in the United States. By way of an interdisciplinary approach to Latin American and Latinx intellectual and artistic traditions, students will critically engage with the legacies of colonialism, slavery, migration, and globalization that continue to pervade ways of being and interacting in Latin America and the United States. By looking at Latin American and Latinx culture on and across borders and in a range of contexts, this minor addresses the intersectionality of identities constructed between Latin America and the United States.
