HST 147 - Introduction to History: Popular Culture in Latin America

1 course unit
Examining the culture ‘of the people’ of Latin America, this course explores a wide spectrum of ‘popular’ practices located outside the realm of ‘high culture,’ including samba, carnivals, folk ritual and magic, oral narratives, sports, and televised soap operas, or telenovelas.  By underscoring broad and diverse cultural production, this course demonstrates how popular culture facilitated mobilization and resistance of the people.  It also examines western influences, portrayals of race, class, gender, and how state regulation of culture influenced these processes.
Meets general academic requirement HU and DE.
