"Teaching Social Hierarchy and Popular Imaginary using Telenovelas" 

Latin American Telenovelas can be understood as both representations and generators of social and class division, and of popular culture more generally. This talk will demonstrate how these powerful and oftentimes problematic forms of representation can serve as tools for prompting broader discussions in language classrooms and about social hierarchies and privilege.

Language Matters presentations apply to all languages, so we hope to see you there!
