ENG 272LEC US Latino/a Literature


Introduction to the variety of cultural works produced by U.S. Latino/a writers and artists, from poetry and plays to novels and films. For example: Prof. C. Tirado-Bramen, Latino and Latina Cultural Expression From poetry and performance art to novels and short stories, this course will provide an overview of cultural works produced by U.S. Latino and Latina writers and artists. We will begin with a historical perspective and the importance of the Mexican American War of 1848 and the Spanish American War of 1898 in forging a U.S. Latino presence in the United States, then turn turn to early twentieth-century immigrant journalists, such as Bernardo Vega and Jesus Colon, viewing their early works alongside Mexican corridos (ballads) from Texas. We will then explore the 1950s, comparing the zoot suit poetry of Raul Salinas with Piri Thomass Nuyorican novel Down These Mean Streets. We will read sidely in the Nuyorican and Chicano Renaissance of the late 1960s and 1970s, examining the nationalist ideologies of Aztan and Boricua and the early critiques of Latina feminists. We'll then turn to the rise of a pan-Latino identity in the 1980s and 1990s. There will be a slide show of contemporary mural art, a screening of performance pieces by Coco Fusco as well as the movie El Norte.
