SPAN 342 Latin American Youth Cultures

This course will explore contemporary youth productions and the representation of youth in the Latin American cultural field (literature, cinema and music). Focus will be placed on the importance of coming-of-age narratives, autofiction, and the relationship between politics and aesthetics. Students will develop an understanding for the ways in which youth subjects and subcultures interrogate ideas related to power, race, gender and social class.
