Black, Latino, Caribbean Culture
You will be asked to reflect on the week’s readings by engaging with at least two authors/filmmakers and one theme/concept and coming up with your own summary, interpretation and critical engagement.
The primary objectives of this exercise are for you to demonstrate competence in three areas:
Displaying a clear understanding of the basic arguments presented by each selected author.
Further, to demonstrate an understanding of the interconnectedness between the various readings and the perspectives of various authors (and whether this interconnectedness is based on agreement, disagreement, or some admixture thereof).
Finally, in light of your own critical reflection on these texts, to clearly articulate your own perspective on this issue.
Whether your perspective is in agreement/disagreement with that of the selected authors/filmmakers, it is necessary for you argue WHY you agree or disagree, HOW you came to your own conclusion, and on what basis/evidence.
