Fall 2018 Course: MAS 395A – Mexican Superheroes, Demons, and Idols

College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Mexico Initiatives
June 6, 2018

This course surveys Mexican society, culture, and history by analyzing and discussing the role of popular icons widely known as heroes, superheroes, idols, or demons. In many ways, they represent people's aspirations, fears, and hopes in different times and contexts. These cultural icons usually embody popular notions of justice, patriotism, solidarity, and protection; so, they reflect social parameters of identity, class, race, education, and gender. We will examine their connections to the national conditions in which they were created, examining specialized readings and popular culture sources such as music, film, comics, and television shows.

Course details:

  • Special Topics
  • Elective for Latin American Studies and History majors
  • Fall 2018 (16 weeks) Tuesday and Thursday, 12:30-1:45pm
