This course looks at Brazilians in the U.S. through the interdisciplinary approaches of cultural studies and ethnic studies. Students will learn how Brazilian identity in the U.S. is not uniform or static, but rather historically contingent, plural, and contested, and how migrants and their descendants shape "minority" as well as "majority" categories in the U.S.. This course satisfies the General Education Criteria for Social Sciences as well as U.S. Minority Cultural Studies.
