New Course Supplement 2016


LATS 37 Migrant Lives and Labor in the Upper Valley: Latinx Studies for Community Engagement

This course introduces students to the cultural, social, and political issues surrounding migrant dairy farm labor through a combination of in-class readings and films, as well as a community engagement component at local dairy farms in the Upper Valley. The course readings include social science scholarship and literature, film, and cultural studies readings, through which we will explore a range of issues affecting local, national, and transnational agricultural and dairy farm workers. On a regular basis during the term, Dartmouth students will visit local dairy farms to engage in collaborative projects with the Spanish-speaking migrant farm workers who live and work on these area farms, some of whom have been residents in the region for many years. We consider how historical and contemporary causes and contexts of migration, settlement patterns, labor market experiences, demographic profiles, identity formations, forms of political participation, structural incorporation, and cultural expressions affect this population of immigrants.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
