Colonial Legacies and Contemporary Identities in Chile

Céire Broderick

Liverpool University Press

Demonstrating the co-dependent nature of constructing femininities and masculinities in any society, this chapter highlights the performative nature of accepted behaviours for men in the colonial societies depicted in the novels and how these relate to the period in which the authors are writing. R.W. Connell’s notion of ‘hegemonic masculinity’ and further discussion on Sonia Montecino’s discussion of the Chilean huacho forms the basis for the analysis.

Keywords:   Huacho, Hegemonic Masculinity, Masculinities, Mestizaje, Ethnicity
