A Sentimental Education for the Working Man: Mexico City, 1900-1910

This project reconstructs the complex and shifting conditions under which early twentieth-century Mexican working-class men emerged as sexed and gendered subjects. By examining alternative masculinities at work or under construction in Mexico City’s satiric penny press for workers during the early twentieth century, it challenges the reduction of working-class masculinities to the macho. It argues that working-class men—whose lived experience forced them to confront modernity’s contradictions in ways their bourgeois counterparts never did—played a definitive role in the development of modern male subjectivities in Mexico.
