GSFS 0425 - Men and Masculinities
*Men and Masculinities* In this course we will consider the creation and performance of masculinities in the American context.  We will ask how men are made and how that making relies on class, race, sexuality, and nation. We will begin with early capitalism and the birth of the ideal man as “market man.”  We will then look at how ideal masculinity depends on the creation of “degenerate” men, like the myth of the hyper-masculinized Black male “beast” and the creation of the mythic mannish lesbian.  We will then trace these late 19th century men and masculinities into our current moment of political machismo, trolling misogyny, bromance, feminist men, hipster men, dandy bois, transmen, and more.  Readings will include: Michael Kimmel, /Guyland/; C.J. Pascoe and Tristan Bridges, /Exploring Masculinities: Identity, Inequality, Continuity and Change/; C.J. Pascoe, Dude, /You’re a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School/; Judith Halberstam, /Female Masculinity/, and bell hooks, /We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity/.  (GSFS 0191 or GSFS 0200 or GSFS 0289) 3 hrs. sem. /(Critical Race Feminisms)/
