Description

(Also LAC 305) Latinos, or Hispanic Americans, constitute the largest minority in the United States today. Yet, in a society that continues to focus on the Black-White racial divide, Latinos are often ignored. This course explores the experiences of Latinos from a sociological perspective. Topics include immigration trends, the meaning of race in the construction of Hispanic ethnicity, the socioeconomic characteristics of the major Latino groups and issues of citizenship, politics, gender, and religion.
