SPN 380 Cuba Mediascape: from Revolution to the Digital Age

(3 credits)

Professor Mesa Morales

This course examines contemporary Cuban cultural production with special emphasis in the audiovisual as a powerful medium for learning about language and culture. The class will explore topics spanning the post-revolutionary period to the present that relate to issues of gender, race, class, politics and migration from the post revolutionary period through the present. We will seek to understand contemporary Cuba by analyzing critically different filmic genres: short and feature length films, documentaries, web series, but also, multimedia performances, cartoons, memes, advertising posters, Hip Hop video clips and more. The audiovisual genre is a significant source of communicative input that captures authentic language, illustrates language variations and will allow students to evaluate changes in social and political representation of the island in the 21st century. We will discuss new modes of production and distribution and investigate the changing structural, technological,
and material conditions that have sustained Cuban film and media. An engaging and interdisciplinary list of readings, drawn from audiovisual criticism, media studies, and history will facilitate and contribute to our study.
