We are pleased to announce the following new course for Spring 2017:
WGS 321A Not Just Black and White: Transcultural Stories of Latina Women in the US (3 hr)
Professor Ana León-Távora
Tuesday/Thursday 9:30 -10:45 AM Tribble A202
The course offers a selection of Latina authors whose narrative works deal with transculturation/heterogeneity, assimilation, and hybridity. Most of these Latina writers consider themselves the product of two cultures. Some of them were born in the United States while others belong to the diaspora of writers who moved to the United States with their families in their earlier years. The students will have the opportunity to read and discuss the powerful point of view of women writers who talk about their experiences as women in a different culture, or as products of a bi-cultural education, in their searches for cultural and gender self-identity. Approved for LALS credit.
