This unit utilises cinema, print, television and online texts to examine diverse representations of masculinities as cultural and personal projects. It introduces classic and contemporary explanations of the construction and communication of masculinities in selected international locations. The unit de-naturalises commonsense and essentialist ideas concerning biology and masculinity as fixed and unitary gender positions. Examination of the diverse, learned and flexible nature of masculine identities and performances provides an understanding of power relationships and self-production across topics such as car culture, colonialism, policing, domestic relations, schooling, sport, peacekeeping, dance, gypsies, popular culture, sexuality, the USA Star Wars defence programme, violence, the new men's movements, and the work place.
