LALS 106 - Dynamic Women: From Bachelet to Ugly Betty

1 unit(s)
How do issues of inequality, social justice, representation, popular culture, migration, environmental justice and globalization look when women’s voices and gender analysis are at the center? This multidisciplinary course examines writing by and about women in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latino/a USA. We read and write about a range of genres — from testimonio, film and fiction to social science. The goal is to develop an appreciation and understanding of the varied lives and struggles of Latinas and Caribbean women, the transnational politics of gender, key moments in the history of the hemisphere, and contemporary issues across the Americas. Light Carruyo.

Satisfies college requirement for a Freshman Writing Seminar.

Not offered in 2017/18.
