book chapter description
Book abstract:Setting new standards in assessing how masculinity in Argentina has been represented in film, literature, and music, this collection untangles Argentinian construction of masculinity, manhood, and gendered difference from the nineteenth century to the present. With methodologies ranging from literary analysis of novels to historical approaches to the construction and performance of gender, these essays offer a dramatic, new multidisciplinary approach to modern Argentinian masculinity.
