dc.description.abstractImaginings at the Judas Tree: The Pardon Tales of "Miss A1exico " details the life story of Maria Teresa de Landa, winner of the "Miss Mexico" pageant in 1928. Landa was to achieve yet greater notoriety when she was acquitted for the crime of killing her bigamous husband in a sensational jury trial held November, 1929. Using Natalie Zemon Davis's concept of the "pardon tale" as a window onto prevailing social mores, this study examines contestations regarding the feminine ideal; specifically, debates regarding the honor of "modem" women in 1920's Mexico City. The transitional nature of the legal system is also investigated. Throughout these investigations are woven themes of gender, modernity, tradition, law, and honor before the colorful and contentious backdrop of revolutionary Mexico City.en_US
