Latino Theater, film homework help

Hello all, I hope this note finds you well!

This week we are looking at an overview of Latino Theatre and the stories of this culturally diverse group from many different parts of the world. You have watched the lecture session with Luis Valdez as he discussed his own path to his career in the Theatre and how the power of storytelling helped pull him from the life he may have lived or was expected to live. What is amazing to me about his journey is his conversation about the power of Art and how his Art shaped his politics and his politics shaped his Art. His work in the last 40 years has been tremendous in furthering Mexican or Chicano culture making huge strides with people like Cesar Chavez and other Chicano leaders in breaking down discrimination with all so called Latino cultures and the racism that was the norm in that day.

The term Latino from the Websters is:

La·ti·no – noun lə-ˈtē-(ˌ)nō

: a person who was born or lives in South America, Central America, or Mexico or a person in the U.S. whose family is originally from South America, Central America, or Mexico

This title covers a wide rages of cultures, social identities, foods and regional places where this wide and dynamic demographic lives. Mexican, Cuban, Spanish, Puerto Rico, Central American countries and South American countries all can fall under this very general covering of Latino. This terms does no real justice to the description and understanding of what the true nature of Latino Theatre is. In fact there is an on going debate if the term really is the best one to describe the vast array of cultures and difference that society generally ascribes to this label. Of course even the use of the label LATINO insights debate as some feel it could be a marginalizing term. You heard Luis Valdez express his own angst and problems with the “Latino” label. It would be hard to put Latino Theatre into a single definition since there are so many different people groups, struggles, triumphs, tragedies and histories that can be told in this genre.

Latino Theatre deals with many of the general issues that we have discussed with other topics that the theatre deals with crime, poverty, immigration, the limited social ladder, racism, religion and paternal culture pressures that cause a great deal of angst for the children of immigrants who are looking to assimilate into a modern American society.

Here is Southern California we have a particular relationship with Latino culture and how we see this played out in politics and local governance. In southern California we see Chicano Theatre that is more specifically from the Mexican heritage and a Mexican P.O.V. This makes sense since California has such a symbiotic relationship with our bordering nation Mexico. We see the on going battles for driver’s licenses, fair pay, immigration status, poverty, and a farming and service culture that tends have a second class citizen kind of P.O.V. wrapped up around it. Just look at the recent movie about Cesar Chaves and his life in central California in the 60’s fighting for immigrant rights. That fight continues in many ways today not only in the growing fields of the great state of California, but in the hotels and motels, the lawns and gardens, the restaurants and service jobs where our hard working Latino friends are working long hours and deserve to be treated just as well as anyone else for the work they do. You have seen recently in the news about large groups of children from numerous Central American countries fleeing their homes to seek out lives here in the U.S. as nearby as Murrieta Ca. We see mixtures of xenophobia, political positioning, and questions about health concerns coming into the larger debate from those that are not as convinced about immigration and its effective enforcement. The issues facing our nation and the individuals trying to access the prosperity and security of our nation is an ongoing struggle and so many of these stories have yet to be told.

Your assignment is in three parts but two pages long:

1. The Theatre Review

Critical Thinking Discussion Question, philosophy homework help

1. In this week’s module we saw that the ethics of care views human life in terms of cycles of attachment. Overlapping relations and cycles of relations make up who we are as individuals. We do not get a sense of who we are by detaching ourselves from our relations with others. This contrasts with the conception of defining the self in separation from and even opposition to others. Do you agree with the idea that we are who we are in terms of our relations, and that we are neither independent nor separate?

2.  In the AVP for this week we also saw that Gilligan rejects Kohlberg’s assumption of a hierarchical ordering that places abstract thinking above thinking in terms of narratives involving human relations when trying to gauge the moral development of individuals. Do you see her critique as a strong one? And if so, what might the success of her critique suggest about employing similar feminist approaches to other areas of the Western philosophical tradition beyond just ethics—such as metaphysics or epistemology? These disciplines too, have tacitly assumed—at least since the Enlightenment—that genuine insight into the nature of reality and the structure of truth is to be arrived at via a penchant for abstract thinking, universalizable principles, and a strict adherence to rationality. For instance, how might a feminist, or what other philosopher’s have called a “Communitarian”, approach to the metaphysical question concerning the nature of the individual, or self—and what it means to be one—contrast with what Hobbes or Kant took the self to be?
