MW 5-6:15, online half-synchronous
How do long legacies of marginalization and oppression manifest themselves in the literature of Latinx and Native writers in the US? How do imagination, humor, and bilingual texts help writers of color in the US represent their experiences--their reality? In this course we will read short stories, essays, speeches, oral stories, and parts of novels to investigate these questions and grapple with the fundamental concerns that "the other Americans" have when writing about their history and lives in the US.
