This class will investigate stereotyping in the American media by looking at how Hollywood films have portrayed Hispanics. The focus will be on Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, but Hollywood treatment of other Hispanic groups will also be discussed, and the concepts we cover are applicable to other stereotyped groups. The course will answer the following questions: 1) What is the history of Latino representation in Hollywood movies and TV? 2) What Latino stereotypes have developed? 3) What are the key sociological, psychological, and ideological theories about stereotyping? 4) Why have Latinos been represented in these ways? 5) What does such representation signify about America, its movies, and its minorities? 6) How have Latino filmmakers responded to stereotyping by representing themselves in media?
