Dia De los Muertos/Day of the Dead: USF Student's Story about the Event (fall 2017, First Year Seminar)

Dia De los Muertos/Day of the Dead: USF Student's Story about the Event (fall 2017, First Year Seminar) | USF Events, Ideas, People | Scoop.it
Dia De Los Muertos is NOT “Mexican Halloween” 

Dia De Los Muertos is different. Rather than fearing death, people   celebrate it. The spirits are not scary, they are welcomed to roam among the living and come to their altar. 

Halloween has its origins in Celtic pagan traditions, Dia De Los Muertos comes from the indigenous people of Mexico.
sfMediaProf's insight:
Some students in USF's First Year Seminar, "Mashup: Media & Pop Culture in San Francisco" attended the Dia de los Metros procession and festival of altars at Garfield Park in the Mission district November 2, 2017.

sfMediaProf's insight:

Excellent final (comic book) projects for the #USFCA First Year Seminar, "Mashup: Media & Pop Culture in San Francisco," spring 2015.

 

Students developed a comic or video that addressed a significant event or experience during their first year of college.  They also integrated a theory from cultural studies or media studies.

 

The results are posted on Storehouse.co or  Exposure.co.  Check out these great stories and comics!
