Welcome to Latino/a Mobility in California History, a collaborative website designed by the students of HIST/ERM 129. This course investigates 20th century California history with an emphasis on Latino/a mobility. Course themes include the right to mobility in the American West, ethnic quarantine, deportation, cars and leisure, freeways, and mobile imaginaries. Through the practices of blogging, digital curation, and primary historical research, we combine traditional historical methods with new media to ask how Latino/a mobility--as practiced, policed, and perceived--has intersected with race, gender, and class to produce varying life experiences in California and beyond. We invite you to tour our digital exhibit, Latina and Latino Mobility in 20th Century California, and visit images from our multimedia Pop-Up installation.
