PART FOUR
Strategies for Change

This section is included to help readers become more analytical and critical in viewing Latino images in the media. The three chapters will help readers clarify and better articulate their reactions to media images, the reasons for their assessments, and the criteria they have used to arrive at these assessments. I hope that these chapters will also help readers to reflect on the readings included here and to focus on broader issues, such as the contexts within which images are shown and interpreted, how images are projected, why some characters are seen in a positive light and others in a negative light, and how stereotypes are often subtly conveyed. I also hope that these chapters will assist readers in moving to a more activist or proactive stance with regard to the issues of underrepresentation and misrepresentation of Latinos in the media.

This section contains three chapters. Chapter 16 includes (1) viewing guides, exercises, and projects; (2) a listing of recent Latino-themed films; and (3) a review of other relevant texts. Chapter 17 is intended to deepen readers' appreciation of the material provided in this volume. It contains questions for review and reflection keyed to individual chapters. Finally, Chapter 18 lists and discusses concrete, practicable steps that can be taken to change the current situation of underrepresentation and the misrepresentation of Latinos in the media.
