Special Instructions:

This seminar surveys the educational experiences of Latinx students, families, and communities in the United States as historically and presently impacted by the social construct of race. It assumes the theoretical stance of intersectionality as a lens that illuminates the ways Latinx education occurs at the nexus of race, gender, sexuality, class, and citizenship status. Specific examples of how Latinx communities throughout the Midwest have experienced, mitigated, and resisted institutional racism in education will allow us to gain a more concrete understanding of the interplay between larger schooling structures and Latinx lives. A special emphasis will be placed on critical race theory and Latina/o critical theory as frameworks that illuminate race in education while centering the experiences of Students of Color. The material thus challenges us to disentangle the effects of race, gender, class, sexuality, and immigration status on Latinx educational attainment and achievement.
