FGSS 3685

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

Spy Kids, Dora the Explorer, Jane the Virgin give us Hollywood visions of what it is like to grow up Latin@ in this country. Sandra Cisneros, Junot Diaz, Sonia Sotomayor and DREAMers provide another set of representations. In this course we will read fiction, poetry, and memoirs about the experience of growing up in the U.S. We will consider the narratives that migrant farmworkers, actors, novelists, and activists produce as they think about how children learn and navigate the processes called racialization, sexualization, and gendering. We will also compare this literature to the work of visual artists like Ana Mendieta as well as filmmakers like Robert Rodriguez.
