"Machismo: Society, Identity, and Online Spaces"

In this platica, Seiri Aragón García explores Machismo and its persistence in contemporary Mexican and U.S. communities. Machismo and the inhibitor, machista, persist in Mexican and Mexican American populations on both sides of the border, while simultaneously appearing in new forms in deterritorial spaces online. Aragon uses personal narratives and textual analysis to argue that despite shifts in contemporary identity politics, many traditional ideologies and attitudes persist among new communities of Mexican identifying men.

Seiri Aragón García is a candidate in the Master of Arts degree program in Mexican American and Latina/o Studies. Her thesis supervisor is Dr. Rachel V. González-Martin, Assistant Professor in the Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies.
