La Joven Moderna in Interwar Argentina: Gender, Nation, and Popular Culture

In this book, Cecilia Tossounian reconstructs different representations of modern femininity from 1920s and 1930s Argentina, a time in which the country saw new economic prosperity, a growing cosmopolitan population, and the emergence of consumer culture. Tossounian analyzes how these popular images of la joven moderna—the modern girl—helped shape Argentina’s emerging national identity.
