ENGL 108 - Latino/a Literature

4 credits
This course examines Latino/a writers in the American literary canon and in the margins, considering issues of crossing borders, hybridity, racial identity, gender and sexuality, and language. From the identity politics of Gloria Anzaldua through the assimilative literature of Junot Diaz, we will focus on the questions raised in the Latino/a culture within and about the United States. Where do these authors fit in the canon? How has Latino/a literature helped mold the cultural and political landscape of the United States, particularly in the late 20th and early 21st century? Enrollment priority: given to English majors and minors. CLA-Breadth/Humanities, CLA-Diversity US
