4 Units

Description

The course provides an introduction to basic theoretical approaches to the literary and other cultural productions of ethnic or "minority" communities in the United States. It also involves the study of important writings by Latina/o, Native American, African American, Asian American, and mixed race writers, and to a lesser degree, the visual art production of these same communities. The course will focus with particular care on discourses of racialization, gender, and sexuality.
