CAST 315 - Brown TV

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
Can watching TV help us understand the world around us? How has the small screen left its mark on our social imagination? In this course, we will approach such questions by examining the relationship between televisual phenomena and contemporary debates about Latinx identities. We will discuss identification, representation, and belonging as we analyze a wide range of programs-including I Love Lucy, Chico and the Man, Modern Family, Vida, and Los Espookys-alongside critical texts drawn from the fields of Latinx studies and media studies. We will also experiment with relevant genres of public writing, such as the review.
Prerequisites & Notes: Previous coursework in CAST is recommended though not required
