Prerequisite: One of HISP-S 324, HISP-S 328, HISP-S 331, HISP-S 333, or HISP-S 334
This course explores Latina/o/x culture in the United States from the 19th century until today. Through the close study of essays, novels, short stories, poems, plays, comics, film, advertising, and music, among other cultural objects, we will analyze a diverse body of Latina/o/x cultural production in relation to various socio-historical contexts. Among the topics we will cover are the representations of legendary resistance figures after the Mexican-American War, farm work and rural life, family and coming of age, language and identity, racial, ethnic, and political conflict, the creation and commodification of Latina/o/x identity, Latina/o/x popular culture, gender/sexuality, and immigration. In addition, students will further develop the concepts and skills necessary to analyze the particular ways in which different cultural texts produce meaning.
This course carries CASE AH and CASE DUS distribution credit.
