Instructor: Sarah Quesada

A course on transnational Latina feminism who throughout the ages have transgressed normalized and heteronormative boundaries from 17th century to contemporary times in film, narrative, and popular culture. From Lieutenant Nun: Memoire of Basque Transvestite in the New World to contemporary authors such as Emma Pérez, Sandra Cisneros, Dahlma Llanos Figueroa, Achy Obejas, Judith Ortiz Cofer, the "America Chavez" comic book author Gabby Rivera, and even the Hunger Games, we will read, watch and discuss some of the most daring accounts of women power in the Latina tradition.
