GRADUATE SEMINAR: LATIN AMERICAN ETHNIC GROUPS -
THE CARIBBEAN DISAPORA IN NEW YORK CiTY

THIS SEMINAR DAL B WIT LATIN AMBRICAN MIGRANT GROUPS in the New York metropoli-
tan area, particularly Colcmbians (and according to the interests of the
participants) Santo Domingans, Jamaicans, and Haitians. The seminar will
concentrate on individual or team fieldwork projects in the Colombian
colony in Queens and will be divided into four parts: I) Classic theories
of immigration and assimilation to North American life-, and current
theories on the social and psychological causes of migration; II) back-
ground on Latin America and particularly on the four groups mentioned, re-
presenting the Spanish, French and English-speaking Caribbean; III) Intro-
duction to the Colombian colony, and IV) Design and execution of a research
project on the socio-cultural, historical, economic or political aspects
of Colombians in Queens. There will be frequent guest lecturers, including
the Colombian collaborators in a research project already underway on
Colombian migration to New York (see below).

BUILDING ON STUDIES OF THE PUERmI RICAN camunity in New York, on Cubans in
Miami and on Mexican migrants, Latin American ethnic studies is branching
out to include many of the other Latin groups. At least 25 other inves-
tigators are working on aspects of this problem to Professor Chaney's
knowledge, including a recent Master's thesis on Colombian professionals
in Chicago carried out at the University of Texas; on Haitians in Miami,
Mexican migrants in Chicago and Cleveland; Afro-Caribbeans in New York,
and women migrants to the Cambridge-Framingham area. In collaboration
with Mary Powers and John Macisco, sociology department of Fordham, and
Ramiro Cardona of the Corporacion Centro Regional de Poblacion, Bogota,
Professor Chaney has received a grant to study the Colombian colony in',
relation the the larger project mentioned above.

A HOWIEDGB OF SPO EN SPANISH OR FRENCH will be helpful, but is not absolutely
essential; students who do not peak either language may, on consultation
with the .professor, either work with an English-speaking migrant group
or do a library research paper.

If you would like to talk about the seminar, Professor Chaney will be
in her office (Sixth Floor Dealy, No. 629) during registration hours.
