Dr. Rosa E. Soto

We have two papers and are seeking 2-3 more for a panel on
representations of Latino and Latin American masculinities in literature
and popular media. The first paper EXAMINES HOW TV AND FILM images of
overbearing Latina mothers FRAME Latino men AS BOTH MACHOS AND "MAMA'S
BOYS." The second paper examines the tenuous relationship of hegemonic
masculinity to gender, national identity, and family in Cristina Garcia’s
novel, Monkey Hunting.
