LACS 104 Introduction to Latin American and Caribbean Studies:The Arts

This introductory course examines the diverse cultures of Latin America through a study of its arts though readings, sound recordings, films, and lectures. Students encounter the communities, histories, traditions, and newer forms of artistic expression. Our final objective is to relate the Latin American culture with cultura latina in the United States. The course provides a framework for more advanced studies on Caribbean and Latin American themes.
