AFRCNA 2728 - TRANSNATIONAL ISSUES IN AFRO-LATIN AMERICAN AND AFRO-LATINX STUDIES


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This seminar course will address hemispheric themes in Afro-Latin American and Afro-Latinx Studies. These will include conceptual frameworks that center human agency alongside political and social constraints in the transnational processes of migration; community formation, linked issues including invisibility, representation, civil rights, and social and environmental justice; the intersectionality of race, gender, and ethnicity in identity adaptation, and the use of information, the arts, and technology/digital spaces to foster knowledge, understanding, and diasporic connectivity. Students will be encouraged to make connections with African American and/or other diasporic populations. Students will conduct research and present their findings and analysis in an array of formats, such as via a traditional research paper, an exhibition of select archival materials, a short documentary-style video, or a curriculum development project.
