Course Description

This course explores the stories of first-generation individuals, which includes both people who are first in their family to be born in a new country and individuals who are first in their family to go to college/university. Attending to the importance and the power of having a voice and using a voice, we will study the ways underrepresented authors of fiction and non-fiction are sharing their stories and carving out a place for first-generation voices not only to be heard, but to be recognized and appreciated for their richness and cultural contributions to American society.
