This course explores theories of gender and sexuality from both North and South and their dialogue with transnational American cultural production. Throughout the semester, we will consider a diverse group of U.S. Latina/o and Latin American literary texts, films, and performances and investigate their construction of sexual, gendered, national, and ethnic identities.
A substantial final research project will be required. Conducted in Spanish.
Any two literature or culture courses. Limited to juniors and seniors. Priority will be given to majors, then minors. (Not offered in 2014-15.)
