Imagining Masculinities: Spatial and Temporal Representation and Visual Culture - Routledge Advances in Feminist Studies and Intersectionality 11 (Hardback)Katarzyna Kosmala (author)
- We can order this
This book examines the intersections between debates in critical studies of men and masculinities and debates on visual representation, investigating representations of men and masculinities in contemporary culture and examples of visual art that deconstruct those representations. It attends to various spaces associated with heteronormativity, including the visible domains of working life, leisure and public discourses, as well as less visible domains such as private spaces, lifestyle, desire and sexual agency.

"This book provides a very important and presently under-examined and under-theorised emphasis upon artwork, masculinities and heteronormativity. It is highly original in its discussion of imagining masculinities and offers a most welcome addition to the field of critical studies of men and masculinities and cultural and visual studies. It makes strong and inventive usage of feminist and other critical theoretical insights such as those drawing upon notions of postcolonial hybridity. There is no other book quite like it."
