SPAN 186 PZ - Latin American Cultural Diaspora

This course explores the forces that have shaped recent migration and immigration experiences of Latin Americans. Consideration is given to how in these contemporary diasporas culture travels and adapts to global and specific local circumstances; the role that language maintenance, cultural hybridization or syncretism and kinship structures play in these processes; the development of global networks of mutual trust; the demands of globalization; and the literal or symbolic desire to return to the homeland, or maintain a virtual and sometimes political influence.

Prerequisite(s): SPAN 100 PZ  to SPAN 104 PZ course/equivalent or instructor’s permission.
