About this product
- DescriptionRanging from fatherhood to machismo and from public health to housework, Changing Men and Masculinities in Latin America is a collection of pioneering studies of what it means to be a man in Latin America. Matthew C. Gutmann brings together essays by well-kwn U.S. Latin Americanists and newly translated essays by ted Latin American scholars. Historically grounded and attuned to global political and ecomic changes, this collection investigates what, if anything, is distinctive about and common to masculinity across Latin America at the same time that it considers the relative benefits and drawbacks of studies focusing on men there. Demonstrating that attention to masculinities does t thwart feminism, the contributors illuminate the changing relationships between men and women and among men of different ethnic groups, sexual orientations, and classes. The contributors look at Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, and the United States. They bring to bear a number of disciplines-anthropology, history, literature, public health, and sociology-and a variety of methodologies including ethgraphy, literary criticism, and statistical analysis. Whether analyzing rape legislation in Argentina, the unique space for candid discussions of masculinity created in an Alcoholics Anymous group in Mexico, the role of shame in shaping Chicana and Chica identities and gender relations, or homosexuality in Brazil, Changing Men and Masculinities highlights the complex distinctions between rmative conceptions of masculinity in Latin America and the actual experiences and thoughts of particular men and women.

Gutmann, Donna Guy, Florencia Mallon, Jose Olavarria, Richard Parker, Mara Viveros
