GCST2609 - Masculinity, Mateship and Men's Lives

Winter Main, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Natalya Lusty

Description

What do men want? From a traditional focus on femininity in gender studies, it is increasingly clear that masculinity has undergone tremendous changes in the last several decades. From a perspective of gender and cultural studies, this unit examines the economic, social and cultural contexts in which masculinity is lived. We will consider different case studies focused on the changing representation of men in contemporary culture. These will include aspects of style and consumption, roles within workplaces, and in domestic practices.
