FYS 042 The Life We Write: An Introduction to Chican@ Literature and Culture

This course will explore Chican@ literary and cultural production from the 1960's to the present day and the manner in which identity has evolved in that time. We will also explore pop culture representations in film, ads, and political rhetoric that have contributed to a problematic articulation of Chican@s in the U.S. imaginary. Authors will include Alurista, Tomás Rivera, Rudolfo Anaya, Lucha Corpi, and Sandra Cisneros.
