WORLD SOCIETY IN LITERATURE AND FILM
• Summer Session I (May 9th – June 17th)
• Fall Semester (August 29th – December 12th)
• Spring semester (January 16 – May 9)

This course explores how different aspects of society in Latin America and Spain are reflected through literature and film. Through an interdisciplinary lens students will examine topics such as politics, migration, labor conditions, gender, and social commentary as literature and film represent them. The discussions, writings, and viewing-based tasks will provide students with the context and tools to make connections and think and write critically. This online course will consist of asynchronous content and occasional virtual meetings with the instructor. This course fulfills the World Society (GG) requirement for students under GenEd and International Studies (IS) for students under Core.


IMMIGRATION AND THE AMERICAN DREAM (831)
• Summer Session II (June 20th – July 29th)
• Fall Semester (August 29th – December 12th)

Historically, the United States embodied a second chance for immigrants. From the Statue of Liberty to the cultural enclaves in major metropolitan cities, the nation
celebrates its diversity. However, immigration controversies are not unique to the 21st century. Using both a historical and sociological framework, this course will take an in- depth look into the immigrant experience, emphasizing immigration from Latin America, as expressed through the immigrants’ own voices in literature and film. Topics explored include: assimilation, hybridization and biculturalism; the politics of language; exploitation and the American Dream; gender, discrimination and stereotyping. This online course will consist of asynchronous content and occasional virtual meetings with the instructor. This course fulfills the Race & Diversity (GD) requirement for students under GenEd and Studies in Race (RS) for students under Core.
