Masculinities in northern Mexico

Received: February 13, 2019

Acceptance: February 20, 2019

The Dr. Misael Hernández, research professor at El Colegio de la Frontera based in Matamoros, talks about how new masculinities are constructed from gender studies and cultural studies. The researcher makes a historical review about the subject and the way in which it has interacted with other fields, such as studies queer. It delves into the way in which the concept of hegemonic masculinity has changed, both temporally and geographically, throughout history from the 1980s to now.

The author makes a comparison between the way in which masculinities are constructed in different geographical contexts and invites us to reflect on this concept not as an idea but as a process, as part of a continuous and moldable change. It limits the analyzes on masculinities in the border context by speaking of "geopolitics of masculinity", that is, concepts such as "hegemonic masculinity" or "male domination" have American, Australian or French influence, so building from within is imperative and necessary to structure a concept of masculinity from the border condition, based on social hierarchies.
