CHIC 1911: Latina/o Revolutionaries and the Global Left

3 CreditsFreshman SeminarRace, Power, and Justice in the United States

This seminar will examine the history of Latinas/os in the United States who created solidarities and relationships with activists, collectives, and revolutionary leaders in Latin America and across the globe. Highlighting how Latinas/os reacted to local struggles against systems of racism, labor exploitation, and patriarchy in a diversity of ways, the class will concentrate on how some of these movements made connections with Leftists in other parts of the world including Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Central America, Vietnam, and Palestine. Reflective of the historical context of US society and the global political-economy, these Latina/o revolutionaries put forth important visions, actions, and changes. Highlighting the diversity of these revolutionaries' perspectives and the debates between them and with others, the class will critically evaluate the ways their analyses, strategies, and practices sought to create a better world in their own neighborhoods, regions, and societies and tied them to key sites of radical change in other parts of the world.
