Latin American and Latino StudiesLALS 177 Latinas in U.S. Cinema

Traces representations of Latinas in Hollywood cinema. Focuses on cinematic forms of representation (silent films to contemporary features). Beginning with U.S. expansion into the Southwest during 19th century and the early era of film, addresses how Latina sexualities and racialized gender are imagined, invented, explored, coded, and regulated in popular culture forms such as films.
