Potential Research Projects

Through the fall semester, students will pursue an individual research project drawing from relevant parallelisms such as:

  • "Moving" frontiers and resettlement policies
  • Hibridity and purity: the nostalgia of origins and the birth of the Inquisition(s)
  • Immigration and/as "conversion"
  • Race, ethnicity and "second class" citizenship
  • Language and/as power
  • Religious and nationalistic zeal
  • The effects of expulsion and deportation
  • Generations: new idioms, new developments
  • Orientalism and Hispanism

This individual research project will culiminate their fall semester course, add perspective for their community trip in January, and be the basis for their spring capstone project.
