Latino Landscapes: A Transnational History of Urban America, 1945-2000

The history of postwar urban America cannot explain the state of the nation's cities until it becomes both a Latino and a transnational history. I propose to study how Latin American immigrants have transformed urban America by analyzing their use of architectural and social space. This research will test three hypotheses: that Latinos have been essential to the urban renaissance of the past fifteen years; that they have led the way in the urbanization of suburbia; and that U.S. suburbanization has been a merely temporary exception to the larger process of urbanization throughout the Americas.
