SPANISH_105-6 Women at the Border: The Marginalization of Latinas in the U.S.: Final Paper: Marginalization of Latinas

About your assignment

Your final paper is a 8-10 page research paper & presentation on a research topic of your choice related to the study of Latina women in the U.S. and global transmigration.

When brainstorming a topic, keep in mind the classic questions of who, what, when, where, why, and how -- how factors such as race, class, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and ability status have affected Latinas and immigration, and how history, institutions, and social structures could affect their experience.

There are separate page guides for finding books, scholarly article databases, and other primary sources that you could use in your research paper. Starting with reference sources and books on your topic will give you a broad overview on whatever you're interested in investigating further. Scholarly articles can illuminate more narrow or specific academic conversations that may not yet be published in books. Newspaper articles, films, and other kinds of primary sources can provide first-hand evidence of your research topic.
