dc.description.abstractThe 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.
