SPAN 340RE - Advanced Studies in Visual Cultures: 'Representations of Labor in Latin American Cinema'

Description
How do labor relationships and the social construction of what work means affect our lives as well as our communities? How do they contribute to shape our identities? In which ways can our gender, sexual orientation, race, social class or migratory status define our working possibilities? How do the concepts of marginality and informality emerge to identify the precarious Latin American labor conditions? Through Latin American films, students will problematize the idea of service, worker, industry, classic and non-classic work, sexual and affective work, and child labor, among others. Prereq: Two courses in Spanish at the 200-level above SPAN-212.
