Exotic Latin Corporealities
LAST 213
Spring 2013
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 215, DANC 214, AMST 213

"Latin" dancing bodies are often exoticized and eroticized, their "passion" foreground and their "excessive" corporeality naturalized. This course aims at mapping and deconstructing associations between "Latin" corporeality and the passionate, excessive, hyperphysical and hypersexual. By focusing on dance genres that fall under the umbrella term "Latin" in the United States, this course will explore how gender, race and national identity are embodied through tango, samba, and Latin ballroom dance.
