Semester: 
Spring

2013
Subject Name: 

Film Studies

Course Number: 
370
Institution: 
Mount Holyoke College
(In English)This seminar offers an interrogation of the ways in which Latinas and Latinos are represented in the cinema. We will explore early portrayals of Latinas and Latinos in film history and then move onto contemporary cinema with a focus on race, class, gender and sexuality in these representations. Employing multiple aesthetic and disciplinary approaches we will analyze commercial films alongside independent films with particular attention to the market-driven and political mandates of these projects. We will focus on films by both Latina/o filmmakers and non-Latina/o filmmakers interrogating the multifarious points of entry of these artists.
