Pitt Latino History Course to be Offered this Summer

0 comment 159 views

University of Pittsburgh is offering a new Latino History course this summer. The course is a survey of the history of peoples of Latin American and Hispanic-Caribbean descent in the United States from the sixteenth century to the present. Students will learn about the distinct ethnic, racial, and cultural forms that Latinos either preserved from their homelands or produced in the US mainland.

Students will analyze the varied experiences of Latinos and Latin American immigrants as they transition to and become part of everyday life in the United States. All of this will be done through a wide array of audiovisual sources like graphic novels, music and film!

Registration for summer is now open for Pitt students through the MyPitt platform. The course is for undergraduate students. CMU students are welcome once required paperwork is completed.

Contact instructor Aura Sofía Jirau with any questions at asj42@pitt.edu.
