LALW317 (Im)migrant Voices: the Future of the American Dream 3 cr.


This class focuses on a variety of literary texts
that examine the experience of immigrants in the
USA from the 1950s to the present. The primary
and secondary readings, supplemented by in class
viewing of films and documentaries, offer a range
of immigrants’ narratives both in their specific
socio-cultural contexts, and in relation to this
country.
 
The class will shed light on American culture and
society in its unifying values and
contradictions, through the angle of vision given
by outsiders looking in, and often challenging
ideas of race, gender, identity, ‘home’, and the
American Dream.[Formerly Immigrants
in America]

Due to the intensive nature of this class, Prof.
Preziuso does not accept any student who wishes
to enroll in her class after week 1 of the
semester, hence having missed the first week of
class.
