Modernity and the Nation in Mexican Representations of Masculinity

Modernity and the Nation in Mexican Representations of Masculinity




This book looks at representations of the male body, sexuality, and power in Mexican literature and the arts. The analysis includes literature, visual art, and cinema produced from the 1870s to the present, focusing on the Porfirian regime, the Post-revolutionary era, and the decadence of the revolutionary state and the emergence of the neo-liberal order in the 1980s to the present.
