AMST120 HM - Hyphenated Americans


Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Balseiro

Description: A focus on the experience of immigrants in the United States and Americans of diverse ethnic backgrounds, as reflected in literature and critical theory. The course will weave together works that treat the lives of immigrants and minority groups in the United States with examinations of such contemporary issues as bilingual education, the conditions of migrant workers, and children as cultural and linguistic interpreters for their parents. The intentionally broad and interdisciplinary nature of the course enables exploration of cultural identities, socio-economic status, and gender-specific roles.

HSA Course Area(s): American Studies; Literature 
HSA Writing Intensive: No
