Midterm Questions:
1. You are tasked with delivering a lecture on the topic of women and migration, drawing insights from the assigned readings: ‘Women’s Burden: Counter-Geographies of Globalization’ and ‘The Feminization of Survival.’ While acknowledging the significance of issues like sex trafficking, the aim of your lecture is to explore the diverse array of challenges and experiences faced by women in migration beyond this singular focus. What fundamental points would you prioritize in your lecture, leveraging insights from the assigned readings to illuminate broader themes and complexities inherent in the intersection of gender, migration, and globalization?
2. What were the primary catalysts behind significant waves of migration from Cuba, Panama, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic, leading to the formation of Latinx communities in the USA? Select only two of the mentioned countries and analyze the key factors driving migration from each, considering historical, socio-economic, and political contexts.
3. Share your analysis of the significance of the Young Lords in the 1970s, considering multiple perspectives. In your response, explore the concepts of Primordialism and Instrumentalism, providing substantial examples for each if feasible.
