Historically Chingadxs: Mexican and Chicanx Film and the Ongoing Prescence of Colonial Spanish Sexual Politics
Sanchez, Luis Sebastian
The main objective of this thesis is to gain an insight of the effects of Spanish Colonialism on Mexican/Chicano culture. More specifically, the goal of the thesis is to investigate the ways that the effects of colonialism can be found in Mexican/Chicano film. My goal was to specifically investigate the ways that Spanish ideas about Gender and Sexuality can be observed in film. In order to situate my intellectual framework, I used the first chapter to gain an insight into Spanish conceptions that center around women and masculinity. In my investigation of the films Tizoc, Blood in Blood Out and Quinceañera I discovered that Spanish ideas that center around women’s virginity and male chivalry can be observed in Mexican/Chicano films. This thesis was written with the intention of providing a unifying framework for Gender and Sexuality studies, decolonial studies and film studies with the hope of giving an alternative medium to examine Gender and Sexuality outside of Literature.
