Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course focuses a lot on intersectionality within the Latinx community and the impact the U.S. has had on Latinx migration to the United States, as well as how the U.S. has treated these migrants once settled here.
This course has got to be my favorite course I have taken thus far at UConn. Jorell did a great job presenting the material and connecting it to Human Rights and how Human Rights is a Westernized idea. I learned a lot, especially how Latinx history here in the U.S. IS U.S. history and it does not get the recognition it should. I learned a lot of about intersectionality, feminism, Latinx role in the Civil Rights movement, the concept of latinidades, queer and LGBTQ+ struggles in the Latinx community, and much more.

Advice for students:
Do the readings, they normally are short readings but are enriched with a lot of information and detail. Pay attention to them, you learn lot from the readings. Also, I would highly recommend that if one is considering to take this course, please be mindful that this is an environment to grow and learn to break away from colonized views. If you in any way are racism, judgmental, or narrow-minded, this is not the course for you.
