White Middle-Class Men in Rio de Janeiro : The Making of a Dominant Subject, Hardback Book

White Middle-Class Men in Rio de Janeiro : The Making of a Dominant Subject Hardback

Part of the Latin American Gender and Sexualities series

Description

In this book based on the biographical accounts of upper-middle-class white men living in wealthy parts of Rio de Janeiro, Valeria Ribeiro Corossacz analyzes specific experiences of whiteness as they are produced at the intersection of multiple categories-in particular gender, class, and sexuality.

White Middle-Class Men in Rio de Janeiro: The Making of a Dominant Subject investigates what it means to be classified as a white person and a man in a society that is known for its valorization of racial mixing and yet deeply structured by racism, class, and gender inequalities.

By examining instances of silence and what is left unsaid as well as precise descriptions of power relations and violent episodes, this book encourages the reader to observe the condition of dominant subjects as a keystone of the reproduction of social discrimination.
