Core AreaNone

Explores the history of migration in the Americas, focusing on mobility to and within Latin America. In addition to discussion on Latin American immigration to the United States, emphasis is on significant but little-known trajectories, such as those linking East Asia and the Middle East to Latin America. Illustrates how mobility to and from Latin America has crucially shaped the region's history, exploring both what has attracted migrants to the region and what structural forces have influenced Latin Americans' choices to leave. Includes several weeks of inquiry into present-day migration in Latin America which students connect with their newfound knowledge of historical migration realities. (LAC)
