ANTHR 7790 - Latinx Education Across the Americas

(crosslisted) LSP 7790  
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading (no audit).

Co-meets with ANTHR 4790 /LSP 4790 .

S. Villenas.

This course examines Latinx education in comparative perspective, with a focus on transnational communities and cross-border movements that link U.S. Latinx education with Latin American education. We ask: how do legacies of colonialism and empire shape the education of Latinx and Latin American communities? How are race, language, gender, cultural and national identity, and representation negotiated in schools? Drawing on ethnographic studies of education in and out of school, we explore how families and youths create knowledge, do literacy, and respond to cultural diversity, displacement, migration, and inequality. Throughout, we inquire into the potential for a decolonial and transformative education.
