This course highlights two regions of Latin America that scholarship could focus more on, the hispanophone Caribbean and the Urban Latinx experience. The class will teach and encourage performance analytics, as well focus on the structural poverty that produced such musics. At a time of the creation of Spanish Trap, the success of newer popular artists like Cardi B, and the #MeToo movement, the discussion of Latinas’ positioning and agency in diasporic musics becomes even more crucial.
