Primary Instructor:

In this course we will explore the emergence and development of television in Latin America and in the U.S. Spanish-language media scene. Drawing from various theoretical approaches (i.e., cultural imperialism, indigenization, and cultural proximity), we will examine the industrial, cultural, and reception aspects of television. By paying particular attention to how political, socio-economic, and cultural circumstances shaped (and continue to shape) television in places such as Mexico, Brazil, Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, and Miami, we will address the ways in which the flow of cultural artifacts and people have influenced the most popular media outlet in the geo-linguistic region.
