Civic Communication and Media
CCM 345 Latina/o/x Communication Studies (4)
This course offers foundations for engaging historical and contemporary Latina/o/x-related media. The course examines diverse communication contexts, ranging from the Pacific Northwest to Puerto Rico. Analyzing a variety of vernacular and institutional discourses about, by, and/or for Latina/o/xs, this course approaches popular culture artifacts (e.g., music videos and films), social movement advocacy efforts, and political and legal rhetoric as significant sites for studying borders, citizenship, colonialism/coloniality, community building, exploitation, (im)/migration, intersectional identities, power, racism, representation, resistance, and transgression, among other topics. The course also asks class members to create their own media on topics significant for Latina/o/x communication studies.
