AMST 444 - The Family as History: The Stories of US Latinos

Cross-Listed as HISP 444 
Examine and compare the stories of Latinas/os in the United States as told by themselves. Students will read authors of Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, and Mexican American origin. We will place a special emphasis on practices and values held both here and in the cultures of origin. The course will cover such subjects as family, social and economic struggles, individual aspirations and spiritual needs. The course will highlight language issues and use film to complement the readings. This course satisfies the Area 4 requirement for the Hispanic & Latin American Studies major. Offered occasionally. Prerequisite(s): HISP 307  or   or consent of the instructor. (4 Credits)
