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.

This panel will explore how representations of Latino masculinities
intersect with questions of race, gender, family and national identity in
both popular and literary mediums.
  
POSSIBLE TOPICS COULD INCLUDE:
Lowrider culture/magazines
Media targeted AT Latino men--film, television, print, INTERNET
Regional representations of Latino masculinities
Migration and LATINO masculinity
War and LATINO masculinities
Non-hegemonic Latino masculinities
LATINO QUEER/TRANSGENDER AND POP CULTURE
