Latin American Studies Question

The materials provided must be used when writing the essay
Request: Based on what you’ve read regarding immigration and cultural trauma, write an essay that examines the lived experiences of the family in The Distance Between Us and of our own communities in light of the effects of immigration trauma.
Your essay should begin with your understanding of cultural trauma, including an analysis of how immigration trauma fits the definition of cultural trauma.
The second part of your essay should consist of an analysis of at least two Grande family members’ decisions, behaviors, and outcomes through the lens of immigration trauma. This section should present a list of the effects of immigration trauma as discussed in the PowerPoints and illustrate, with examples from the book, how the family members you chose experience these effects. Do not tell me what happens in the book. Tell me how what happens is an example of the effect of immigration trauma.
Lastly, discuss how the effects of immigration trauma extend to the larger Latino community. This section should present your understanding of how trauma is transmitted to new generations.
