"Shrek 2:" An Appraisal of Mainstream Animation's Influence on Identity
Pimentel, Octavio; Velazquez, Paul
Journal of Latinos and Education, v8 n1 p5-21 Jan 2009
This article examines the discursive practices presented in "Shrek 2." We apply a critical discourse analysis lens while focusing on the way animated versions of Latinos and African Americans are portrayed. In particular, the essay focuses on Shrek, Donkey, and Puss-in-Boots and the various stereotypical language discourses they reproduce. The essay then makes a comparison between the animated film and the current reproduction of racist ideologies that mirror the positions of minoritized people in U.S. society.
