What is the connection between urban space and political mobilization? What role do the youth of a city play in the negotiation of urban identity? What role is played by public intellectuals, journalists, photographers and novelists? These are questions the faculty and the students in Hispanic Studies 390/Literary and Cultural Studies 401 are answering in their Fall 2008 class discussions and their research projects. See the comments.
