AMST 244 - Urban Latinx Power

Cross-Listed as   and   
Comparative study of Latinx political struggles in the United States.  We will explore the themes of subordination and empowerment through issues such as anti-immigrant ballot initiatives in California, the election of Latino mayors in Denver and San Antonio, Cuban dominance in Miami politics, multiracial violence in Los Angeles, and battles over labor conditions, affirmative action, bi-lingual education, and racial profiling.  Student projects may involve field research among Latinx communities and organizations in the Twin Cities. Alternate years. (4 Credits)
