Description
Explores Southwest Chicana/o cultural history with a focus on memory. Introduces Chicana/o history across the United States. Broadens the understanding of race, class, and gender while examining how communities experienced U.S. colonization of the former Mexican Far North, Americanization and assimilation, economic booms and busts, wartime progress, urban renewal, gentrification, and the evolution of identity. Students discuss the importance of memory and commemoration to Chicana/o history, why they memorize the things they do; and the importance that memorialization holds for Chicana/o identity and Latina/o identity more broadly.
