    This course provides an introduction to the Latino literature of the United States, which is written in English. Although writers from various Latino backgrounds will be studied, the course will primarily examine the literature of the Chicano, Cuban-American, and Nuyorican writers who write from an American perspective. Topics such as identity, assimilation, bilingualism, and growing up in the U.S. are analyzed while exploring this new literature.
