WGS 3801 The Masculinity Matrix

Who are these guys? This course aims to answer that question through an interdisciplinary study of the male gender and American masculinities: the sciences, the theories, and the (sub)cultures – with all their cultural products: film, music, literature, sports, and the like – that construct contemporary masculinities in United States. From hetero to WeHo, metro to retro students observe and analyze the intersections between masculine identity and race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender performance and other social/cultural issues. No hugging or talking about feelings.
