Description: This course examines the social, economic, political, organizing, identity, migration, immigration, legal, linguistic, and cultural developments of Chicanas and Chicanos in the United States through a historical perspective. The history of Chicanas/os covers over 500 years and is complicated, varied, and multi-layered. We cannot justly cover all aspects of this historical trajectory. Instead, we will focus on key moments and critical transformations in the Chicana/o historical and contemporary experiences. We will use the themes of "power relations" and "resistance" as experienced by Chicanas/os to gain a better understanding of the complexity and diversity of the Chicano peoples. Additionally, our goal is to comprehend how race and ethnicity, class, gender, region, migration/immigration, and sexuality have shaped Chicana/o identity and history. Topics we will address include (but are not limited to) historical conquests and resistance; cultural contact and conflict; war and manifest destiny; migration, immigration, community formation, and identity; race relations; the Chicano Movement; and personal narratives. This course was formerly known as SOCSC 330.
