LATS 41 Representations of/from Latinos in the Media and the Arts

What role do the media and the arts play in the formation of ethnic, racial and cultural identities for Latinos/as? How do Latinos respond to these representations of themselves through various electronic media and the arts? This class investigates how race, ethnicity, gender, and "otherness" are represented in various media and art forms, including: cinema, radio broadcasting, performance art, mural art, graphic novels, and the Internet. We will trace the history of Latinos in various media and artistic movements, as well as hold online discussions and video conferences with students and professionals working in these areas. Students will explore the politics and dynamics of representation by producing their own creative and critical work and presenting it to the Dartmouth community through their final projects.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
