Summary

Latina/o popular culture has experienced major growth and change with the expanding demographic of Latina/os in mainstream media. In The Routledge Companion to Latina/o Pop Culture, contributors pay serious critical attention to all facets of Latina/o popular culture including TV, films, performance art, food, lowrider culture, theatre, photography, dance, pulp fiction, music, comic books, video games, news, web, and digital media, healing rituals, quinceñeras, and much more.





Features include:









  • consideration of differences between pop culture made by and about Latina/os;






  • comprehensive and critical analyses of various pop cultural forms;






  • concrete and detailed treatments of major primary works from children’s television to representations of dia de los muertos;






  • new perspectives on the political, social, and historical dynamic of Latina/o pop culture;






Chapters select, summarize, explain, contextualize and assess key critical interpretations, perspectives, developments and debates in Latina/o popular cultural studies. A vitally engaging and informative volume, this compliation of wide-ranging case studies in Latina/o pop culture phenomena encourages scholars and students to view Latina/o pop culture within the broader study of global popular culture.
