From immigration debates to Emmy-winning television, Latina/os are a fixture of our contemporary mediascape. The course examines the presence and participation of Latina/os in the U.S. media from both a historical and contemporary perspective. We will also consider the intertwined questions of race, gender, and stereotype through case studies of individual stars, from Carmen Miranda to Sofia Vergara. While examining representations of Latina/os in mainstream film and television, the course also considers the broad range of media through which Latina/os have represented themselves: experimental film, documentary, the alternative press, and music. Through this survey of cultural production, students will become versed in histories of immigration, the relation of Latina/os to conceptions of race, the diverse experiences of different national origin groups, and contemporary issues facing this population.

Course Requirements:

Requirements include several quizzes, short writing assignments, and a final paper.

Intended Audience:

This course is ideal for undergraduate students interested in media histories, Latina/o culture, and current events.
