Screening Images of American Masculinity in the Age of Postfeminism Kindle Edition

Editorial Reviews


The blurring of the line between television and motion pictures is one of the paradigmatic shifts in popular culture in the 21st century. Viewers use numerous devices to access programming and often care little about the origins of the material. This reality serves Screening Images of American Masculinity in the Age of Postfeminism well, as Abele (English, SUNY Nassau Community College) and Gronbeck-Tedesco (American studies, Rampapo College of New Jersey) demonstrate how postfeminism, along with queer studies and masculinity studies, have used popular culture to critique media and society. The 12 essays…in this volume treat Robin Williams and Will Smith, the Bourne films, The Avengers, The Wrestler, and Kick-Ass and the television shows Firefly, Fraiser, Nip/Tuck, Boston Legal, Mad Men, Dexter, Miami Vice, and Breaking Bad. Perhaps due to television’s extended period of character development, the essays on that medium are particularly strong in illustrating the complicated constructs of masculinity in contemporary US culture. The editors provide an adequate discussion of the theoretical messiness of the term “postfeminism.” These essays allow the reader to grasp how 21st-century depictions of masculinity can be both misogynistic and protofeminist, heteronormative and bro-romantic, reactionary and sensitive—often at the same time. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals. ― Choice

All in all, the essays in this volume are thoughtful, interesting, and enjoyable to read. This volume. . . makes a worthwhile contribution to that conversation. ―
