    Universal expositions of the later nineteenth century were opportunities for the host country to reinforce its sense of nationalism and to showcase its technological progress or, read differently, the progress of man. This thesis examines nationhood as defined in terms of masculinity at the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition, which demonstrated French technological, colonial, and artistic superiority over all other nations

    The author uses the government commissioned Pavilion of Mexico from the Universal Exposition as her 1889 case study. She argues that perspectives on national identity can be extracted by looking at Mexican architecture. She adds that foreign influences play a major role in formulating the national identity of a colony. The structure is analyzed in the context of Mexican social and political history. Includes illustrations and a bibliography.
