SOC 3210 Men, Masculinity, and the Movies

3 Hours

Prerequisites: SOC 1010  or Instructor’s consent.

This course examines men and masculinities from a sociological perspective. It uses cultural representations of boys/men from a variety of media (e.g., music videos, magazines, television, and film) as a framework for analyzing boys’/men’s lived experiences (e.g., in interpersonal relationships, at work, in education, in families). It examines the processes by which boys, men, and masculinities are shaped within different socio-historical contexts and by social factors such as race/ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation. Ultimately, it offers theoretical explanations related to the social construction of masculinities.

Gen. Ed. Designation: EL (R - Undergraduate Research).
