Visual Studies 185X Spring 2013
Word and Image: Songs & Places: Mexico
Instructor: Anthony Dubovsky
What are the connections between song and place — visual, musical, and beyond? This semester, the course concentrated on the folksongs of Mexico (el cancionero mexicano, the classical corrido/ranchera/bolero tradition) with an eye to the visual sources for the songs—and the ways in which they stem from — and reflect — Mexican culture.
