Beginning with the Chicano movement in the 1960s, we will read, view and write about plays across several generations of the main Latino/a groups in the US informed by their production history, theoretical and historical articles, performance videos, polemics and manifestos. Cross-listed with American Studies, English, Comparative Literature. Intended for students from a range of majors. Includes Juniors and Seniors.
