¡QUE FUNNY!: HUMOR IN CONTEMPORARY CHICANA/O CULTURAL PRODUCTIONS
Valencia, Sonia Ivette
This thesis examines the ways contemporary Chicana/o cultural productions such as Chicana Falsa, Ugly Betty, and La Hocicona Series deploy humor to critique longstanding, stereotypic, and monolithic depictions of Chicanidad, around the notions of hispanophonia and the "Chicano family romance." This study contends that contemporary Chicana/o cultural productions posit Chicana/o subjectivities that are flexible, at times contradictory, and but always in flux. Ultimately, this thesis theorizes humor as a limited but powerful tool of resistance for borderlands subjects.
