This chapter examines the impact of economic, political, and social transformations on the sertanejo men during the period from 1865 to 1869. It investigates how pressures in the material condition of the free poor families disrupted the practices that were central to the constitution of hegemonic masculinities defined in terms of autonomy and ownership of material resources as emblems of honor. This chapter describes the effects of broad social change on the male sertanejos' ability to attain the culturally accepted signifiers of honor and explains that these changes also eroded the social-economic foundations that sustained free poor men's claims to hegemonic positions within their households and communities.

Keywords:   sertanejo men, social transformations, economic transformations, hegemonic masculinities, honor, autonomy, social changes
