Culture of Mexico

THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT IN GUADALAJARA

Culture of Mexico

This course examines the rich territory of contemporary Mexican culture. We will study the main cultural movements and tendencies of the plastic and visual arts (painting, photography) of the 20th-century, including the Mexican Muralists. Students will have the opportunity to analyze the musical and artistic expressions that define “Mexican-ness” (popular songs, dance, and “corridos”). Other forms of popular culture will be also studied for their social and aesthetic relevance (crafts, “charreria”, movies, among others). (1 Unit)
