Course Wiki

We will use the course wiki to archive our Term Projects. Please make sure you have signed up for a topic (does not have to be from this list) and it must relate to both Latinos (men and/or women) and issues of masculinities. Because your projects will serve as a resource for other individuals studying Latino masculinities and in order to expand this, please do not repeat a topic someone else has chosen or previously developed on the Course Wiki. If you have any questions or concerns that your topic might be too similar, please consult with me first. If you have any questions, concerns, or need help finding a topic, please talk to me in person, via email, or on Skype.
