SPN 452 Guerrrilla, Gays and Gangs: Outsiders in Hispanic Film (A)

Prerequisite: Any 300 level literature and culture course in Spanish.

Why do we fear outsiders? Because we don’t know them? Because they are different? Or because their difference makes us question our own identity and values? Students in this class will take a closer look at cultural icons such as Ernesto Che Guevara, Latino gay culture, and the social and economic factors driving gang membership, immigration and prostitution. Requires active class participation and advanced writing skills. 3 Cr.
