Newberry Teachers' Consortium

Please note this seminar will be taught in Spanish. This seminar will explore through film the controversies surrounding Latin American immigration in both the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We will specifically examine race relations, exile, the war on drugs, push-pull factors and the socio-political backdrop of multiple Latin American countries and the United States; that is, through filmic representation, we will gain a vivid understanding of immigration across the Americas.
