Central Americans, in many ways, are a “transnational” people: their cultural, political, social, and economic practices, and the families and communities of the population itself, reach across international borders. What kinds of cross-border attachments, exchanges, and cultural practices or understandings connect people in Central America with people of Central American heritage in the United States? How do such connections operate, and what are their effects in Central American people’s lives in Central America and in the U.S.? Drawing from multiple sources of course material you may choose to discuss the transnational characteristics of Central American political or economic activities, family dynamics, racial or ethnic stereotypes or generalizations, and/or the social reproduction of Central American “places” outside of Central America itself.
