TCL 373: Latina/ Chicana Issues: Home

Course Description

Developed as a critical examination of the lives of Latinas in the United States, this course documents the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, & class in the day-­to-­day survival strategies of these women. Students will explore the lived experiences of Latinas and Chicanas as they: survive the borderlands of the United States, work and labor across time, contest patriarchy, embrace cultural identity, and construct feminista ideologies.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three 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.
