LST 312 - Discourses of Masculinity

In exploring the ways in which communities talk about, and thereby construct, masculinity, this course studies the dynamics giving rise to these discourses, the truths and stereotypes underlying them, and the social, economic, political, and global interests and issues emanating from them. Through a variety of theoretical perspectives, the course examines popular and literary texts to learn how communities understand, represent, impose, and reinforce notions of masculinity. Satisfies the Individual and Society General Education requirement.
