Languaging and the Latinx identities

Maria Parra-Velasco
T Th 12:00pm-1:15pm
This course builds on students' knowledge of Spanish to explore the relationship between their languaging practices and their Latinx identities. Understanding languages as a way of knowing and meaning making, we use a variety of texts, genres, music, videos, films and visual arts to engage in discussions about family heritage, migration, and Latinx cultural and linguistic traditions and innovations. Students will strengthen their oral and written abilities, expand their interpersonal, interpretive and performative resources for languaging in informal and academic contexts.
