Masculinities Conference, Session 2, Scripting Manliness

We are now into the question and answer portion of the Masculinities Conference second session, Scripting Manliness. Erik Pietschmann presented on The Beach and American Psycho, Raili Marling presented on Blue Valentine, and Keisha Lindsay presented on black men’s crisis narratives. This was a very integrated session even though the papers were independently conceived. Besides the theoretical connections between the papers, each presenter seems to take a very careful and nuanced approach to their respective subjects.

Lots of energized commenting and questions . . . Professor Babacar M’Baye is raising issues of multiplicities of masculinities and how that relates to black men on both sides of the Atlantic . . . Professor Stefan Horlacher raises significant questions about the panelists’ definitions of violence and masculinity, because the definitions employed could radically change the framework of the respective papers.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
