Working Title

Can the Subaltern Be a Superhero? The Politics of Non-Hegemonic Superheroism

Description

Superheroes are, by definition, guardians of law and order, i.e. of the status quo. Not coincidentally, the majority of them—and certainly the most famous ones—are male, straight, and white. Yet there are costumed crime-fighters who do not conform to that tacit rule and serve, in this sense, as examples of what we can call alternative superheroism. Those are the ones this collection of essays will examine.

Subject Fields:

Sociopolitical humor and satire have a long tradition in Latin America. Since the nineteenth century, a variety of artists and writers have contributed to its development. Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada (1851–1913), whose satirical broadsides and calaveras or “skulls” provided a critical portrayal of social, cultural, and political tensions in Mexico during the Porfiriato and the beginning of the 1910 Mexican Revolution, is considered one of the founding figures of this tradition. Many other figures took this tradition in different directions up to the present.

Mothers-in-law are familiar figures in jokes, stories, and culture. They are everywhere. Yet it is interesting to note that, to date, and even though the mother-in-law figure is an ever-present figure in life and an important part of our social and cultural history, it would seem that there are no published academic books on representations of the mother-in-law from the angle suggested in this cfp.
