G325 b gendermags_4_understanding gauntlett-

  1. 1. Use these questions to help revise the key points from the photocopy of Gauntlett’s chapter on men’s magazines Understanding Gauntlett’s discussion of men’s magazines 1. What narratives of masculinity does Gauntlett identify as being represented in men’s magazines? 2. Where does he discuss binary opposition and gender? 3. Where does he discuss masculine doubt/ the crisis of masculinity? 4. P179 - “Magazines for men are all about the social construction of masculinity. That is their subject matter.” Is this true? What evidence would you cite? 5. Men’s magazines such as Loaded “found a way to combine traditional pleasures (such as looking at women without many clothes on) with a post-feminist discourse which simultaneously accepts and dispenses with the feminist critique.” What does this mean? (How) Does it argue that dominant ideology shifts rather than changes? (How) does it argue that the concept of hegemony is correct?
