LATI 244 - Urban Latinx Power in the U.S.

Cross-Listed as

Comparative study of Latinx political struggles in U.S. cities.  How did Chicana feminists transform student social movements on college campuses?  In San Antonio, Denver, and Los Angeles, how did multiracial coalitions elect pioneering Latino mayors?  And in Chicago, who fought for immigrant rights and who stood in their way? We will explore the themes of subordination and empowerment through study of anti-immigrant ballot initiatives in California, Cuban dominance in Miami politics, multiracial violence in Los Angeles, and battles over labor conditions, affirmative action, bilingual education, and racial profiling.
