W 200pm-500pm CMA 6.172
(also listed as
MAS 392 )
This graduate seminar surveys Chicana and Latina feminist scholarship, activism, and creative expression, with an emphasis on media production. We will explore the rise and development of Latina feminisms and activism in relation to the Chicana/o, Puerto Rican, and U.S. women’s movements and in relation to historical and social contexts for women and girls of Mexican American and other U.S. Latina heritage. The last half of the course will survey scholarship on Latina participation and representation in mediated popular culture and strategies of resistance enacted through Latina film and media production.
