Masculinity Studies: The Case of Brando
Pinto, Samantha
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v10 n1 p23-30 Feb 2011
This reflective article interrogates the role of masculinity studies in the women's and gender studies' classroom by looking at the work of American film icon Marlon Brando. Brando and his risky masculinity in the film represents a locale of "dangerous desires" which reveal deep conflict in student perceptions of men, women, and gender. (Contains 2 figures.)
