SOCIOLOGY

SOCY-551 Sociology of Latino Studies (3) Course Level: Undergraduate/Graduate

Sociology of Latino Studies (3) Focusing on Latino populations and on Latino studies as an emergent field of study, this course references U.S. Latino populations as border populations, crossing over U.S./Latin American imaginaries. The "Latino" category helps problematize ethnic/racial categories, becoming a method of hybridity discussions. Though interdisciplinary, the course has a strong sociological foundation. Usually Offered: spring. Prerequisite: three courses in sociology. Recommendation: SOCY-210, SOCY-351, or SOCY-354.
