SPN 320-01 - Cultures of the Spanish-Speaking World

4 credits (Spring)
Gender and Latinidad are social constructs in)formed by models, patterns, and ideals that we observe and imitate. Film has been of particular influence with respect to the transmission of gender ideals and expectations–as well as the coding of latinx bodies. In this course, using cultural studies methodologies, we will concentrate on representations of latinxs in the United States and the cultural messages that accompany these representations from the 40s to the present day. In particular, we will analyze the relation between representations and self-perceptions of latinx subjects through stereotypes and gender models. 

Prerequisite: SPN 285 .
Note: Plus-2 option available.
