Description: This course examines the first one hundred years of Mexican American literary and print production, from 1848 to 1948. It is a period of production when neither its writers nor its texts, and especially not its print culture, were considered productive for the nation-state of either the United States or Mexico. Through the lens of liberation philosophy, coupled with nineteenth-century Latinx literary criticism, settler-colonial criticism, and critical regionalism, this course explores the cultural, political, and intellectual dimensions that underwrote how and why writers and publishers of Mexican descent established a print culture against all odds.
