Description

The Routledge Companion to Latina/o Media provides students and scholars with an indispensable overview of the domestic and transnational dynamics at play within multi-lingual Latina/o media.  The book examines both independent and mainstream media via race and gender in its theoretical and empirical engagement with questions of production, access, policy, representation, and consumption. Contributions consider a range of media formats including television, radio, film, print media, music video and social media, with particular attention to understudied fields such as audience and production studies.
