Chicano/Latino/a Transnational Studies has three primary purposes. The first is to understand the history of the Chicano/Mexican people and other Latinos living in the Americas. The second is to use these experiences as an analytical window into broader social processes such as social stratification, global economics, Diasporas, forced and voluntary migration, social reproduction, social movements, racial formation, political engagement, interlocking axes of sexuality, gender, race and social class. The third is to connect the classroom to the community through the application of critical pedagogy, participatory research, and community-based learning.
