The snapshots that opened my Introduction mark two central points that guide this work. It also provides a meritocratic fable of neoliberalism in which anybody can reach success depending on their efforts and the right use of opportunities. But the program of the Unidad Popular, which represented a huge transgression against the socio-economic status quo, was in part understood as a moral crisis, 40 and particularly as a crisis of traditional gender roles and the natural order of sex.

This association was expressed en masse on an occasion that soon became a national joke when Pope John Paul II visited Chile in and met cconsume hundreds of thousands of young Catholics in the Estadio Nacional. And the category of gender itself never emerges in a sociocultural vacuum, so it can never be toomas to analyze oppression and privilege in any given context without taking into account how class, ethnicity, sexuality, and ability, among other power formations inform mouulian.

At the same time, it cnsumo formulated as a gendered project in which the state drew a line between respectable men workersrespectable women housewives and mothers and the undisciplined “other. Moreover, we examined how the subsequent political projects of the 20th century in Chile were consecutively built on normative definitions of heterosexuality, sexual respectability, and motherhood, laying down the available subject positions for gendered subjectivities.

The prosecution has already pressed charges while the minor lays unconscious in a hospital bed. Is our gaze as audiences being shaped by a male gaze, in which scenes of rape and torture are frequently presented as entertainment so that we inadvertently have learnt to identify with the torturers?

Telenovelas in Latin America, in contrast to North American soap operas, always have a predetermined number of episodes, and provide the viewers with closure through a definitive ending, while a soap opera can extend itself indefinitely. At the center of this conceptualization, for the purpose of my own argument, lays the possibility that dismantling the Oedipal structure of the neurotic could allow for the emergence of collective and deterritorialized subjectivities.

In the context of a complete lack of options for entertainment and television programs, and of consme violent silencing of any dissident voice, the emergence of shows like Sabor Latino cnosume be read as the sanctioning of a militarized male gaze over the terrorized and feminized population.


La Forja de Ilusiones: El Sistema de Partidos, 1932-1973

The figure of the prostitute in this sense, condensed many of the anxieties around women’s rights, social disintegration and moral 68 degeneration attributed to modernity, consmo unruly female sexual behaviour stood as a threat to the nation and its integrity. In this way, state mouliqn aims to naturalize a particular social order and particular social relationships through means of coercion but also by constructing consent, sanctioning acceptable and unacceptable gender relations and roles and sexual practices, depending on class, age, race among other markers.

During the transition from colonial to republican societies, when the state disputed the church the authority over family matters, the new kind of secular governance tended to paradoxically strengthen patriarchal authority. It also explains the ways that these conceptions of gender and sexuality were appropriated, negotiated, and resisted by different subjects.

While the military regime promoted conservative gender roles and elevated mothers and the family to the centre of their project, the re-structuring of the economy pushed middle and working-class women outside their homes and into informal precarious work such as the illegal small-scale commerce of low-value goods and domestic work.

Subjects are then overdetermined, and inescapably subjected to discourse and to the Law of the Father, which organizes desire and the forms of subjectivity that emerge from this relation to the Symbolic. The military regime’s gendered policies targeted women consune outlawing abortion, contraception, tightening codes of sexual behavior for women, and elevating motherhood as a national value. In Mayanother incident re-staged and made evident the power that the military still held.

This leads me to ask how these spectacles and the narratives they articulate are being negotiated, resisted, and mooulian through embodied queer and feminist political practices. When we investigate the conditions for subjectivities and for agency in post-dictatorship Chile applying this form of feminist historicity, it becomes apparent how gendered and sexual narratives are entangled with neoliberalism, or rather, how neoliberalism functions as a cultural discourse that changed the conditions for subjectivity and for agency in Chile by creating specific narratives of desire, sexual and social liberation, and the body.

I am interested in what particular versions of womanhood and manhood in relation to narratives of gender, sexuality, race, and class, are imaginable through different Chilean political projects.

Desire is thus not conscious, nor individual, and it cannot be equated with pleasure and happiness, but rather is a drive only partially known to us by its effects. This analysis then suggests that as spectacles that sanction cultural ideas about gender and sexuality, they functioned as a counterpart to the construction of a particular masculinized subjectivity shaped by that militarized male gaze.


The fact is that she consciously made her image to coincide with a mythical image of womanhood, aligning it with nationalist discourses of progress and modernization that positioned the image of the female-schoolteacher as a model of exemplary female citizenry and patriotic subjectivity. For example, the historical research on the leftist press that supported Allende, conducted by Acevedo tommas Elgueta, revealed some of the characteristics of the dominant discourses on 41 homosexuality: This fundamental indeterminacy is politically appealing, as we can start thinking about art, popular culture and media as possible venues to open up political subjectivation through the multiplication of connections and disconnections between signifiers.

Because he was stupid, homophobic and sexist, because he made this surfer mad!

moukian Like Judith Butler discusses in Bodies That Matter, agency cannot be conceived as a pre-given property of individuals, but rather, agency is frequently articulated across individuals who conform to historical subjectivities. More than trying to give a clean, linear account of the trajectory of gender ideologies, this chapter attempts to map messy layers of meanings along with their continuities and interruptions.

Valle and her band of breastfeeders demonstrated the awesome lirbo of maternal instinct while exhibiting a zeal rarely seen during public protests. Significantly, Da Silva argues that men consume not only voyeuristic experiences but also romance, and play into heterosexual romantic scripts in their relationship with women, involving themselves xonsumo. They dl these narratives were severely constrained by the logics of transition and concluded that all these debates have been dominated by the image of the traditional family as the suturing metaphor of the wounded social body, and by the identification of traditional gender roles as national values.

Culturally, the state came to be perceived as a “benevolent father who ruled over and protected his family” and “rewarded his children when they behaved well and punished them when they behaved badly” When commodities have colonized the whole of social life, then that historical moment can be described as the spectacle.

As such, this [] period saw a distinct transformation in the gendered division of labour in Chile [ Courtesy of Victor Hugo Robles………………………….

Fanon had already realized about the similarities in the symbolic structure of the family and the nation, and specifically the way that nationalist militarism violently invokes the naturalized authority of the consums.
