Resumen


El análisis de identidades de género no hegemónicas en el Sur Global ha propiciado un replanteamiento de los enfoques y paradigmas tradicionales. Hoy en día, el constante flujo a nivel global de imágenes y generalidades en torno a la belleza y el sexo se mezcla e interactúa junto a la diseminación de ideologías de corte individualista, concibiendo constructos de género de gran variabilidad, permeabilidad y porosidad. Este artículo busca discutir los modelos clásicos empleados para conceptualizar a las waria (travestís femeninos) de Indonesia y a su vez repensar la construcción del término a partir de un análisis de los recientes cambios acontecidos en el país. Dicho replanteamiento está ligado a la necesidad de acuñar enfoques alternativos que aborden la mutabilidad de las realidades de género en un mundo cada vez más globalizado.

Palabras clave
