Transvestism, masculinity, and Latin American literature : genders share flesh by Ben Sifuentes-Jáuregui( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about transvestism and the performance of gender in Latin American literature and culture. Ben. Sifuentes-Jáuregui explores the figure of the transvestite and his/her relation to the body through a series of canonical Latin American texts. By analyzing works by Alejo Carpentier, José Donoso, Severo Sarduy and Manuel Puig (author of Kiss of the Spiderwoma n), alongside critical works in gender studies and queer theory, Sifuentes-Jáuregui shows how transvestism operates not only to destabilize, but often to affirm sexual, gender, national and political identities
Critical terms in Caribbean and Latin American thought : historical and institutional trajectories by Yolanda Martínez-San Miguel( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a collection of critical essays on twelve keywords central in Latin American and Caribbean Studies: indigenismo, Americanism, colonialism, criollismo, race, transculturation, modernity, nation, gender, sexuality, testimonio, and popular culture. Each one of these keywords is conceived in conversation with a broader cluster of terms The central question motivating our work is how can we think--epistemologically and pedagogically--about Latin American Studies as a field that has taken different historical and institutional trajectories across the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States. Each keyword is presented in the anthology through a lead essay that reflects on a notion in conversation with other terms that are either derived, related, or posed as potential responses, subversions, or interrogations of the original keyword. The response essays supplement the lead essay by exploring the debate from a different disciplinary perspective or field (including discussions in Latin American, American, Caribbean, Ethnic and Latino, and Women and Gender Studies), or exploring an angle or aspect of the concept that was not necessarily discussed in the lead essay. The lead essay and response format encourages further debate around each specific term, highlighting North-South, South-South and South-North approaches to each critical term"--
