Semester/Topic Description::

We'll examine the presence of a Hispanic diaspora (specifically, Puerto Ricans/Niuyoricans, Dominicans, and Mexicans) in NYC, together with issues of immigration, the discourse of the changing identity, as well as the linguistic phenomenon known as Spanglish or Ingla�ol.

Students will check the official site of the City of New York daily in order to keep abreast of how it is publicly portrayed.

Halfway into the semester, a trip to Nueva York will highlight the course as it takes us directly into the metropolitan art and cultural experience, beyond the classroom walls.
