Subject Area

Global Languages and Cultural Studies

Description

As part of the course for Spanish Heritage students (GLSP 290), students read a novel entitled A Través de Cien Montañas (Across a Hundred Mountains), which depicts the hardships adolescents face as a result of the separation of their families due to immigration to the U.S. and the lack of opportunity in countries like Mexico, where most of the novel takes place. Students in this class are prompted to reflect and analyze the story through their own creative lens, and as a final assignment they develop a creative project that illustrates an issue, theme, or scene that impacted them the most.

This joint presentation involves several students discussing their personal connection to a theme or an aspect of the novel they were interested in exploring further. Topics covered include family dynamics, gender issues, immigration, and identity.
