GONZALEZ ROMERO, Martín H.. Literature and masculinity in Mexico’s first modernity: research notes on three novels on independent Mexico. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2015, vol.1, n.1, pp.157-169.  Epub Feb 24, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

These notes discuss the research process and the results of a dissertation for a Master’s Degree in Gender Studies. It reads into three 19th-Century Mexican novels:La Quinta Modeloby José María Roa Bárcena,Clemencia, by Ignacio Manuel Altamirano, andEnsalada de Pollosby José Tomás de Cuéllar. The interpretation of these works shows a transformation towards a modern masculinity, in accordance to the liberal regime. The discussion addresses methodological problems of the use of literature as an historical source. It also proposes a dialogue with social theories about modernity.
