Bibliographies

The primary texts (films, books and catalogues) are listed separately on the main seminar schedule. Below is some suggested secondary reading for each seminar, where available. Please note that very little material has been published on the more contemporary films studied, although articles and reviews can often be found on the internet. An asterisk (*) indicates that a photocopy of that item is available for consultation or copying in the Centre of Latin American Studies. Items without asterisks are usually available from Cambridge libraries (in most cases the University Library or the CLAS library, Mill Lane).
