HIUS 113/ETHN 154 THE HISTORY OF MEXICAN AMERICA, 1900-PRESENT Professor David G. Gutiérrez Fall 2016 H&SS 6012, 534-3040 [email protected] OFFICE HOURS: Wed. 1-3pm and by appt. This upper-division lecture and discussion course explores the recent history of Mexican Americans and Mexican immigrants in the United States, who together constitute one of the fastest growing components of the American population. Focusing on historical developments in both Mexico and in the United States, the class includes discussion of major political, economic, social, and cultural trends, and more specifically, addresses immigration and demographic patterns, the dynamics of identity formation and change, interethnic and intra-ethnic gender relations, differential patterns of racialization, interactions with other groups, ongoing struggles to achieve political equity and social inclusion, and potential future trajectories. COURSE REQUIREMENTS: Although there are no formal prerequisites for this class, this is an upper-division course requiring strong critical, analytical, and writing skills. In addition to attending lectures, completing reading assignments, and participating in weekly in-class discussions, students will complete an 8-10 page take-home midterm examination (45% of final grade) and a 10-12 page take-home final examination (55% of final grade). ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: In classes such as this, where consideration and discussion of controversial issues are the norm, it is imperative that students treat both course material and each other with the respect they deserve. With regard to written work, it is also imperative that each student take responsibility for doing his or her own work, and in this class, there will be zero tolerance for academic dishonesty and/or plagiarism. Students shown to have submitted work that is not their own will fail the course. UCSD regulations regarding academic integrity are spelled out in the General Catalog. Please note:
