Class Project: Latino Nation

The United States is changing—it is becoming browner, mainly due to immigration from Latin American countries, which is increasingly on the rise. How is the US society responding to this demographic revolution and all the challenges it implies? Through deep research and critical analysis, you will become an expert on a current-events topic related to the shifting demographics of this country. You will trace the history of the subject from various points of view and present your analysis in a written paper and in a colloquium with members of the local Spanish-speaking community. Controversy tends to characterize these issues and will help you build a dynamic and multifaceted discussion of the subject.
