Conducts transnational, intersectional, and feminist analyses of the construction and embodiment of multiple masculinities engendered by colonialism, race, class, nationality, gender nonconformity, disability and minority subcultures. Centrally engages masculinities’ varied entanglements with femininity, effeminacy, female bodiedness, and binary imaginations that undergird gender, relying on interdisciplinary examinations of popular cultural texts, history, ethnographies, creative writing, art, and autobiography to aid our examinations. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Social Inequality requirement.
