1. Chávez, Cuitláhuac. La figura mítica de Pancho Villa como ícono de identidad nacional y masculinidad en México y en la frontera México-Estados Unidos através de la literatura y el cine.

Degree: PhD, Spanish, 2013, University of Texas – Austin

In my dissertation I show how the hegemonic power of the post-revolutionary state in Mexico utilized the figure of legendary Pancho Villa in literature and cinematography to create a national myth that represents a consensus in a mestizo patriarchal Christian society. I examine how the use and abuse of the image of Villa in post-revolutionary literary works and films caused this figure to acquire mythical characteristics and dimensions, and to become a key element in the construction of national identity and masculinity in Mexico. I argue that the figure of Villa is a confirmation of a traditional rather than a revolutionary proposal in gender terms. Equally important, I demonstrate how the literature and film of the Mexican revolution constitute instrumental devices for the formation of masculinity and the strengthening of a homo-social culture in the Mexico’s post-revolutionary stage, a process that would later determine the structure of the Mexican state. I also contend that in the construction of the mythical figure of Pancho Villa at least two sources of representation are participating: the Mexican state machinery on the one hand, and the American media on the other. By the same token, I show how the figure of Villa nurtures a national project and constitutes one of the most diffused perceptions of Mexican identity in the United States. Advisors/Committee Members: Domínguez Ruvalcaba, Héctor, 1962- (advisor).

2. Jurado, Kathy. Alienated Citizens: "Hispanophobia" and the Mexican Im/Migrant Body.

Degree: PhD, American Culture, 2008, University of Michigan

ABSTRACT Alienated Citizens: “Hispanophobia” and the Mexican Im/migrant Body by Kathy Jurado Chair: María E. Cotera This dissertation analyzes 20th century representations and discursive constructions of the Mexican im/migrant body through an eclectic variety of cultural texts produced during three “Hispanophobic” moments in American history. The Depression era, the Post War era and the mid 1990s have been isolated as key historical moments when the Mexican im/migrant body becomes highly visible in public discourse as evidenced in the deportation drives of 1930 and 1954 as well as the heightened nativism evidenced in 1994 when Proposition 187 was passed in California. During these moments, the Mexican body became a metaphoric landscape upon which broader questions of citizenship and national identity were battled. Anti-immigrant rhetoric circulating at these times racialized and pathologized the ethnic Mexican body resulting in profoundly dehumanizing effects that extended onto the Mexican/American community living in the United States. More importantly, however, I show how Latina/o culture workers have consistently identified and challenged these dehumanizing discourses in their cultural productions and in effect rehumanized the oft maligned Mexican im/migrant body. The works of the various Latina/o authors and artists this dissertation analyzes reveal the complex ways in which citizenship and race are problematically conflated and blurred particularly during politically charged times. This dissertation engages an interdisciplinary approach by looking at novels (such as The Adventures of Don Chipote and Under the Feet of Jesus), scholarly research (like Jovita Gonzalez’s Master’s Thesis and Ernesto Galarza’s commissioned report Strangers in Our Fields) and on-line digital media (as evidenced in the work of Alex Rivera and Lalo Alcaraz) in order to map the long history of articulated responses to dehumanizing, anti-immigrant rhetoric. Further, this dissertation will show how the works of these Latina/o culture workers constitute vital, if obscured, counter-narratives that fill in the historical gaps, erasures and misconceptions that have continuously marginalized, if not erased, Mexican Americans from the U.S. national imaginary. Advisors/Committee Members: Cotera, Maria (committee member), Benamou, Catherine L. (committee member), Gonzalez, John Moran (committee member), Stern, Alexandra (committee member).
