A two-year curricular development project to create two new bilingual Latinx history courses and to incorporate a bilingual pedagogical approach into additional Latinx studies humanities courses. 

This project proposes an interdisciplinary initiative led by the Latino & Latin American Studies Research Center (LLASRC) at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) to create a Latino and Latin American Studies major and redesign the Latino and Latin American Studies minor while infusing bilingualism throughout both programs. Latinx Studies programs throughout the country have educated broad groups of students in the histories and cultures of this growing demographic group while affirming the identities of Latinx students who typically completed high school without seeing their own experiences in the curriculum. Yet surprisingly, ours will be the first to design a full curriculum that capitalizes upon students’ familiarity with Spanish to teach them deeper skills for engagement with historical, political, and cultural texts and push them to continually analyze the relationship between language and power, all while affirming their real-life bilingual abilities.
