Contemporary Latinx writing explores an extraordinary range of experiences using a variety of experimental forms. This course will examine the poetry, fiction, memoirs, plays, and new media produced within the last fifteen years by a new generation of Latinx writers and artists. We will consider how writers queer Latinidad, play with gender norms, question received concepts of race and culture, and examine the constraints imposed by immigration laws and de facto practices of segregation. Authors may include Justin Torres, Sandra Cisneros, Eduardo Corral, Erika Lopez, Junot Diaz, Helena Viramontes, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

When Offered Spring.
