This course examines the cultural representation of gender and sexuality in the Spanish-speaking world analyzing a selection of recent Latin American and Spanish movies, fictional and non-fictional texts. Starting from the theory of “gaze” developed by Laura Mulvey, we will address questions related to identity construction, feminism, patriarchy and machismo, heteronormativity and queerness. We will reflect on how different sociopolitical contexts concur to the construction of femininity and masculinity in society and regulate sexuality.

>P> Students will become familiar with cultural patterns, specific vocabulary, as well as with conceptual and critical tools in order to discuss the material of the course.

>P> This course counts as literature credit toward the Spanish minor.

Class Format:

This course will be taught entirely in Spanish, and favors a multi-disciplinary approach, as well as an active role of the students through group activities and class discussions. We will be using a variety of materials including literary texts, essays, and audiovisual aids.
