From the Publisher"One of those rare texts that will be useful to scholars interested in broadening their knowledge of Latina and Latino representation and participation in the US media industries and of US Latina/os more generally, while also educating undergraduate students in accessible and engaging prose about the broad array of subjects and scholarship that comprises US Latina/o media studies."
Bulletin of Latin American Research
"Latino Media Studies has come of age with this broadly informed, highly engaging overview of recent scholarship and approaches in the field. Valdivia guides readers through complex and intriguing terrain - synthesizing, evaluating, and ultimately clearing a path for a new generation of researchers."
Myra Mendible, editor of From Bananas to Buttocks: The Latina Body in Popular Film and Culture
"Latina/os and the Media offers a richly complex look at the mediated world of Latinidad. The analyses presented here challenge static understandings of representation and media politics and replace those traditional notions with the contradictions that now comprise our understanding of the relationship between Latina/os and the media. From citizenship to sex, readers get it all."
