The course analyzes issues such as identity, popular memory, resistance, and negotiation as expressed through ritual, crafts, the body, social movements, films, music, and literature. It examines a range of expressions of Latin American popular culture including cartoons, comic strips, telenovelas, photographs, graffiti, music, tales, testimonies, and folk art. Course themes include: popular culture in Latin America; the mestizo body; gender and racial issues; politics; Buenos Aires in images.
