Mexican Migration

Jan 2006

I really enjoyed this class. It had a slow start (the first half of the semester is spent reading and critiquing poorly done works about Mexican migrants). Nick also doesn't say much but in the end you read a lot of his stuff and realize he really knows what he's talking about. Then the class finally all starts to make sense and you realize that you've learned a lot along the way. The requirements aren't bad and overall I learned a great deal about America's history with Mexican migration and was forced to think about things in an entirely different light. I would surely recommend this class to anyone who want a good, critical introduction to Latino studies.
