This course will focus on the diversity of Latino families and youth in the U.S. and their transnational connections to Latin America. The experiences of diverse communities will be discussed, including Mexicans and Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, Guatemalans, and others. This interdisciplinary course will use psychological, sociological, anthropological, demographic, and policy research to examine contemporary issues in Latina/o transborder society and culture such as transnationalism, demographic changes, representation gender dynamics, cultural identity development, stigmatization and discrimination, biculturalism, neighborhood segregation, migration, racial and ethnic identities, politics, and education.
The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
