Critical Race and Ethnic Studies

CRES 70U (Un)docu Studies

Deconstructs the common perception of immigration as strictly a Latinx issue in order to develop solidarity among different groups of students and to explore a range of narratives surrounding undocumented status and migration with the aim of empowering us as agents of transformative social change. Legal papers, as a violent affirmation of settler sovereignty, do not capture the complexities of who we are, much less all our relations—to each other, to place, to life worlds. By exploring those complexities, we strive to create a communal space where we courageously articulate self, community, and relationality in ways that state documents must disavow. Course is offered for Pass/No Pass grading only.
