How does homosociality among Chicano men shape relationships in lowrider car culture? In this talk, Dr. Mike Chavez applies the frameworks of homosociality and Sedgwick's Erotic Triangle to shed light on the complexity of gendered relationships in a space that is predominantly Chicano/x.

This talk precedes UCI's Wayzgoose Festival and The Car Show on the Green, which features classic, antique, and muscle cars in Aldrich Park later in the week.
