This Health Humanities Portrait--Identity at the Intersection of Gender and Religion among Mexican-American Women in Chicago-- explores how individuals are expected to navigate a variety of social roles—such as their gender, age, and vocation--in their everyday lives. This Health Humanities portrait uses a “dramaturgical analysis,” derived from performance studies, to explore how social roles influence our understandings and experiences of health, well-being, and illness.
