Kurzbeschreibung

This book is a journey through the landscape of masculinities in film. While most works in this field focus on specific actors, genres or eras, this book theorizes masculinities that are situated in the borderzones of hegemony. Inspired by feminist film theory and cultural studies, Rieser presents a highly original account of effeminate, monstruous, adolescent, and dead-man masculinities. His determined resistance to "feminization"—subsuming non-hegemonic masculinities under the category of femininity—offers a fresh look at issues such as identification, the gendering of spectatorial positions, and the viability of alternative representations of masculinities.
