Drawing on authentic cultural materials ranging from thought-provoking artwork to classic literature and short contemporary films, Retratos: Arte y sociedad en Latinoamérica y España offers a fresh and inspired approach to the teaching of advanced Spanish Composition. In each of the eight thematically-organized chapters, these primary source materials are used to illustrate--to provide a "portrait" of--a historically or culturally important figure in the Hispanic world. These first-hand introductions to such personalities offer students rich opportunities to explore cultural differences, learn grammar in context, and complete writing activities with a real relationship to both themselves and the world around them. Features: The unifying theme of portraiture--with each chapter providing the distinct perspective of a key figure in the Latin American and Spanish worlds--organizes the topics in the book, such that students can build on and compare/contrast what they have already learned. 90 full-color reproductions of authentic artworks and photographs provide students with vivid illustrations of important historical and cultural references. Award-winning short films, streaming online, allow for immediate and focused in-class discussion. Writing in process: each chapter highlights a specific writing genre, reviews a grammatical point, and introduces a writing sample--all situated within the context of the chapter topic. Text selections showcase exciting new Latin American and Spanish voices, including such authors as Junot Díaz, Laura Freixas, Dolores Prida, and many others.

Analyzes contemporary superhero-themed cinema, television, and web series in Latin America. Capitán Latinoamérica is the first study to examine the unique contribution of Latin American cinema, television, and web series to the global superhero boom. Through an analysis of superhero-themed media from Mexico to Argentina, Vinodh Venkatesh argues that contemporary Latin American superheroes are a hybrid of regional tropes and figures such as the famed luchador, El Chapulín Colorado, and North American blockbuster characters from the DC and Marvel universes. These superheroes channel anxieties specific to their respective national contexts. In Chile, for example, Mirageman rehashes and works through the Pinochet dictatorship and its traumatic aftermath; in Honduras, Chinche Man confronts neoliberalism and gang violence. In Colombia’s El Man, in turn, rapid urbanization and drug cartels are the central concerns, whereas corruption and the political machinations of the state feature most prominently in the television and web series Capitán Centroamérica. While the Latin American superhero genre may be superficially characterized by low budgets and kitsch aesthetics, it also poses profound challenges to the social, political, and economic status quo. Covering a wide variety of media bookended by wrestling films from the early 1960s and multimedia productions from the 2010s, Capitán Latinoamérica offers a comprehensive introduction to, and assessment of, the state of the superhero in Latin America. Vinodh Venkatesh is Professor of Spanish at Virginia Tech and author of New Maricón Cinema: Outing Latin American Film and The Body as Capital: Masculinities in Contemporary Latin American Fiction.
