Description

This volume provides a look at the popular culture of Latin America - its dance, cooking, art, carnivals, music, romance, funerals, monuments, medicine and humour. Popular culture encapsulates the pleasure in everyday life, and this work seeks to show how it offers moments of laughter (through jokes, satire and simple foolishness); of delight from jobs well done (whether cooking, ploughing, fixing a carburettor, or setting a table with flowers); of escape from dreary daily life (in festivals, drinking, romance, or dreams created by comic books and television); and of living well (by listening to current music, dancing the latest steps, or wearing the hottest fashions). In addition to the everyday aspects of Latin American life, this book includes theoretical approaches to Latin American popular culture, such as the invention of traditions, the creation of national identity, the formation of gender roles, and the prevalence of ethnicity.
