Samantha Nogueira Joyce's Brazilian Telenovelas and the Myth of Racial Democracy traces the representations of Afro-Brazilians on television, culminating with the telenovela Duas Caras (2007-2008), and reveals how telenovelas contribute to social change in ways that have not been fully explored in previous scholarship. It also provides a comparative analysis between the representation of Blacks in Brazil and in the United States while it tracks the dynamic process through which Duas Caras worked to debunk the myth and ideology of racial democracy in Brazil.

Humor and Latina/o Camp in Ugly Betty: Funny Looking expands the vista of critical approaches to comedy and representational politics on mainstream television from an interdisciplinary Latina/o studies approach. González and Rodriguez y Gibson examine how Ugly Betty uses humor and Latina/o camp to reframe socially charged issues on the show: representations of masculinity and familia, immigration, drag and queer subjectivities, Latina sexuality, and finally, a Latina feminist critique of the American Dream. Ugly Betty moves beyond the binaries of traditional representational politics and opens a vista of critical possibility applicable to all mainstream texts that portray people of color through comedy. This work will be of interest to scholars in media studies, Latina/o studies, and communication studies.
