Den medierade mannen : En ideologikritisk studie om maskulinitetsideal i svenska podcasts / The mediated man

Boberg, Evelina January 2012 (has links)
Syftet med uppsatsen är att utifrån teorier om hegemonisk maskulinitet och homosocialitet studera hur normer för maskulinitet reproduceras i tre svenska populära podcasts. Uppsatsen innehåller tre frågeställningar som är följande: Hur förhandlas maskulinitetsnormer hos Alex & Sigge, Filip & Fredrik och Luuk & Lokko?, genom vilka rollprestationer upprätthålls eller omförhandlas normer för hegemoniska maskulinitetsideal? och vad innehåller dessa podcasts för specifika strukturer och hur återfinns maskuliniteter i detta innehåll? Mitt teoretiska och analytiska perspektiv grundar sig i forskning om maskulinitetsprocesser och hegemonisk maskulinitet. Vidare utvecklar jag mitt teoretiska ramverk med genreteoretiska anknytningar där den ideologiska funktionen inom dessa blir central. Analysen består av samtalscitat från mitt material där jag transkriberat relevanta delar för att kunna gå nära texten. Ut efter tematiseringar grundade på huvudpersonernas relationer till varandra och till personer utanför texten analyserar jag sedan mitt material i två delar. Maskuliniteten konstrueras i och med olika rollprestationer som huvudpersonerna sätter i spel gentemot varandra och andra. Dessa rollprestationer blir talande i min analys och bidrar till min slutdiskussion. Sammanfattningsvis avslutar jag med en slutdiskussion där jag anknyter till mitt teoretiska ramverk och diskuterar vilka maskulinitetsnormer som är rådande inom min text. Jag lyfter även det teoretiska perspektivet till en större samhällelig kontext i och med att jag anser att maskulinitetsnormer ingår i ideologiska strukturer i samhället. / The purpose of this paper is: based on theories of hegemonic masculinity and homosociality to, study how masculinity is reproduced in three popular Swedish podcasts. The paper contains three research questions: Which values around masculinity exists and is represented in the three podcasts that I have chosen? How is masculinity represented based on defined performances of Alex & Sigge, Filip & Fredrik and Luuk & Lokko? What content does these podcasts have and which specific structures around masculinity is found in this content? My theoretical and analytical perspectives are based on research in masculinity representations and hegemonic masculinity. Furthermore, I develop my theoretical framework with genre theories, where the ideological functions of these become central. The analysis consists of conversation quotes from my material, which I transcribed the relevant parts in order to get close to the text. I have thematically constructed two levels of analysis based on the characters' relationships to each other and to the persons outside the text. Masculinity is constructed with various performances by the main characters put in play against each other and others. These performances will be critical in my analysis and contribute to my final discussion. In the chapter called conclusion I end with a final discussion, in which I relate to my theoretical framework, and discuss which masculinity values that are present in my text. I also broaden my theoretical perspective to a larger social context, in that I believe masculinity norms are included in the ideological structures of society.

Vad är en man? : En kvalitativ studie om hur unga män kan konstruera maskulinitet

Stiernstedt, Elisabet, Jawara, Ami January 2012 (has links)
The aim of the study has been to examine how young men from Stockholm construct "Masculinity". This has been done by examining what men think is an ”ideal man”, what "makes a man a man", which expectations they meet as men and how the life of a man differs from the life of a woman. This has been examined through three semi-structured group interviews with the total of ten men. The results have been analysed with Raewyn Connells Theory of Masculinities, the idea of “Doing Gender” by Candace West and Don. H Zimmerman and the "Conception of Homosociality" described by Jari Kuosmanen and Karin Holmberg. R. Connell’s Theory of Masculinities provides a description of the “Ideal Man” and reveals what men think "makes a man" along with which expectations a man can meet. Our results show that men have clear opinions of how an "ideal man" should be,  thus reinforcing the construct of masculinity as described by Connells. Furthermore results indicate that men can see more benefits to being a man than a woman. This can be explained by the fact that men value what men do more than what women do, which can affect the equality between the sexes.

Manliga veganer : En narrativanalys om manliga veganer och maskulinitet

Eriksson, Linn January 2009 (has links)
The purpose of this essay is to investigate the subject field of male vegans and masculinities through empirical method interviews and narrative analysis. The starting-point for this essay is animal ethics, feminist ethic vegetarianism and theories that suggest that eating meat is one part of the social construction of masculinities. The problem formulation is such as follows: How do male vegans construct masculinity? In an attempt to answer such a question there are three problem formulations: What do male vegans think about the connection between manhood and eating meat? How do male vegans relate to the norms in society? What do male vegans think of stereotype conceptions about vegans? I will come to the conclusion that male vegans think that eating meat, as well as drinking beer, is one part of the social construction of masculinities. Male vegans are aware of norms in the surroundings and the strong attachment of meat normativity in the western culture. They are also conscious about the stereotype conceptions about vegans, which affect how they talk about and perform their own veganism.

Fatherhood Experiences Of Lower-middle Class Men: The Case Of Eskisehir

Tecik, Zeynep 01 September 2012 (has links) (PDF)
Like femininity, there is not one type of masculinity. Since there are different kinds of masculinities, there are also various types of fatherhood. Historical, cultural, economic, and social factors can affect fatherhood experiences in different ways. The aim of this thesis is to analyze the fatherhood experiences of lower-middle class men who live in Eskisehir and have at least one son. Within this context men&rsquo / s relations with their sons and their fathers will be the focus of this study. Issues such as early childhood experiences, maturity, work life, education life, and domestic division of labor will also be included with reference to the fatherhood experiences of the men in the sample.

Televizní lifestylové pořady : fenomén maskulinity, proměny a úspěchu / TV lifestyle magazines : the phenomen of masculinity, makeover and success

Horáčková, Lucie January 2010 (has links)
Diploma thesis "TV Lifestyle Magazines : Phenomenon of Masculinity, Makeover and Success" mostly deals with the concepts of life-style, taste, makeover a masculinity and their factual manifestation in particular television shows. In its theoretical part the thesis defines fundamental themes and concepts based on literature, especially according to Pierre Bourdieu, Dick Hebdige and Michel Foucault. The concept of life-style has gained much importance in contemporary society, because it's actually the style of life which has become the most important principle of social clustering. One of the first sociologists to reflect on the concept of life-style was Pierre Bourdieu. His conception of life-style is based on stratification and social inequalities. These inequalities are - according to Bourdieu - the product of deep structural inequalities underlying the society as a whole. The thesis also concerns with style as intentional communication, hegemony and resistence as perceived by Dick Hebdige. The body and the process of moulding it into the shape of disciplined bodies is the subject of another part of the thesis. Further on the thesis deals with the problem of body and masculinity, and above all with the process of building its image in the media. Two types of masculinity are defined; first hegemonic...

”Iso, vahva, rohkee – kaikenlaista”:maskuliinisuudet, poikien valtahierarkiat ja väkivalta koulussa

Manninen, S. (Sari) 30 November 2010 (has links)
Abstract This dissertation examines how boys construct masculinities and hierarchical orders in their social interactions at school. Those themes are studied from viewpoints of power, ethnicity, status, and particularly violence in a framework of hegemonic masculinity. The study uses feminist post-structural methodology and critical discourse analysis; the material consists of questionnaires, interview data, and observation material collected in two phases from the same school classes in 2002 and 2007. Tuija Huuki’s qualitative, longitudinal material is also explored in two joint articles written with her. Longitudinal analysis and case studies are also used in this research. Four discursive forms of masculinity are found and analysed in this research from the perspective of hegemonic masculinity. These forms of masculinity legitimate, challenge, or affect hegemonic masculinity, and are considered particularly from a viewpoint of visible violence and subtle, normalised violence. Toughies used violence the most visibly. Banal balancers used violence in more subtle manners. Silent sympathisers for their part legitimated violence as bystanders, while gender traitors were often targets of gendered violence as they withdraw from hegemonic masculinity. In the context of this work, hegemonic masculinity refers to the pursuit of culturally and socially idealised masculinity, which was considered normal on a local level. This research also analyses peer likeability and respect, which are suggested as the prominent dimensions of status in a framework of hegemonic masculinity. Respect links more closely to a cultural pattern of masculine supremacy and power position than to peer likeability. The concept of hegemonic masculinity – analysed through power relations and through status and its resources – proved mosaic-like, transforming, and difficult in nature, but also useful to this research both theoretically and pragmatically. The struggle for status and power is violent when it includes a superiority that diminishes others and if a higher hierarchical position is aspired to at another person’s expense. This research also exposes the struggles and normalised violence in which ethnicity is present. It challenges teachers to develop models of how communality constructs manners of using power. / Tiivistelmä Tutkimuksessa tarkastellaan poikien maskuliinisuuksien rakentumista ja hierarkkisia järjestyksiä sosiaalisissa vuorovaikutussuhteissaan koulussa. Näitä teemoja analysoidaan vallan, etnisyyden, statuksen ja erityisesti väkivallan näkökulmista hegemonisen maskuliinisuuden viitekehyksessä. Tutkimuksessa käytetään feminististä metodologiaa ja kriittistä diskurssianalyysia. Materiaali koostuu kahdesta koululuokasta viiden vuoden välein kerätystä kyselylomake-, haastattelu- ja havainnointiaineistosta. Kahdessa yhteisartikkelissa on käytetty myös Tuija Huukin kokoamaa laadullista, pitkittäistutkimuksellista aineistoa. Tutkimuksessa käytetään pitkittäisanalyysia sekä tapaustutkimuksellista otetta. Aineistosta löytyi hegemonisen maskuliinisuuden näkökulmasta tarkasteluna neljä maskuliinisuusmuotoa. Näitä hegemonista maskuliinisuutta legitimoivia, haastavia ja siitä irtisanoutuvia diskursiivisia maskuliinisuuksien muotoja on analysoitu huomioiden erityisesti näkyvä ja piiloinen, normalisoitunut väkivalta. Kovikset käyttivät väkivaltaa näkyvimmin, banaalit tasapainoilijat piiloisemmin, rauhalliset myötäilijät legitimoivat väkivaltaa sivusta seuraamalla ja hegemonisen maskuliinisuuden pettäjät joutuivat usein sukupuolistuneen väkivallan kohteiksi irtisanouduttuaan hegemonisesta maskuliinisuudesta. Hegemoninen maskuliinisuus tarkoittaa tässä tutkimuksessa paikallisella tasolla kulttuurisesti ja sosiaalisesti hyväksytyn, normaalina pidetyn maskuliinisuuden tavoittelua. Tutkimuksessa on analysoitu myös statuksen ulottuvuuksia, joiksi hegemonisen maskuliinisuuden viitekehyksessä määrittyivät kaverisuosio ja respekti. Respekti määrittyy tässä tutkimuksessa statuksen maskuliiniseen kunnioitukseen liittyväksi minäorientoituneeksi ulottuvuudeksi, jolla on vahvempi yhteys valta-asemaan kuin kaverisuosioon. Hegemoninen maskuliinisuus näyttäytyi mosaiikkimaisena, muuttuvana ja hankalana mutta käyttökelpoisena teoreettisena ja pragmaattisena käsitteenä tämän tutkimuksen kontekstissa. Kamppailu statuksesta ja vallasta on väkivaltaista silloin, kun siihen liittyy toisia väheksyvää paremmuusajattelua, jossa omaa asemaa pyritään parantamaan toisten kustannuksella. Tämä tutkimus tekee näkyväksi näitä kamppailuja ja niihin liittyvää normalisoitunutta väkivaltaa, jossa myös etnisyydellä on osansa. Samalla se haastaa kasvattajat kehittämään malleja yhteisöllisyyttä rakentavasta vallankäytöstä koulussa.

”Ute på djupt vatten i det här feministiska …” : En fenomenologisk undersökning av feministiska mäns erfarenheter av att träna

Pettersson, Johan January 2017 (has links)
This essay explores men´s relationship to training through a phenomenological understanding of bodily comfort and orientation. This is done by a survey performed with three men who identified themselves as feminist and continuingly exercise their bodies. The phenomenological understanding is then broadened by coupling the men's experiences to contemporary research on masculinity. By employing theories surrounding Sara Ahmed's view on phenomenology and Raewyn Connell's hegemonic masculinity, the essay shows that the men's bodily comfort and orientation is affected by the fact that they exercise. Through their training they construct bodies that in some aspects correlates with the conception of being in form, being fit. It also correlates with normative conceptions of masculine bodies. The conception of the fit body and masculinity is also explored through a view on norms of society. The feeling of incorporating social norms increases the men's bodily comfort, and give them a sense of being in control of their bodies. That they identified as feminist shows that they have an ambivalent relationship to their practitioner.

You can’t eat the sweet with the paper on : An anthropological study of perceptions of HIV and HIV prevention among Xhosa youth in Cape Town, South Africa

Yllequist, Kajsa January 2018 (has links)
South Africa has the biggest HIV epidemic in the world and the HIV rates among youth are especially alarming. In 2016 there were 110 000 new cases of HIV among 15 to 24-year-olds. The aim of this study is to describe and analyse perceptions of HIV and HIV prevention among Xhosa youth in the township of Langa, Cape Town. In order to study this, I focus on the organisation loveLife and their employed peer educators called groundBREAKERs (gBs). To gain knowledge on what fuels the HIV epidemic in this setting I will examine their thoughts and notions of HIV/AIDS, sexuality and sexual behaviour in relation to the information that is available to them. Examining the socio-cultural context of HIV/AIDS is important to understand the spread and why HIV is not declining sufficiently in response to HIV preventative efforts. This thesis is based on ten weeks of fieldwork at loveLife’s Y-Centre in Langa. The material was gathered through semi-structured interviews and participant observation. To analyse the drivers for the spread of HIV among Xhosa youth an analytical tool of gender roles, with a main focus on masculinity, has been utilized.

Hegemonic Masculinity in Men with Schizophrenia: Complicity and Strategic Performance

Vidmar, Christopher 14 December 2016 (has links)
Using secondary analysis of in-depth interviews of men with schizophrenia (N=59), in this thesis I explore the interplay between the performance of hegemonic masculinity and the treatment career of men with serious mental illness (SMI), and in doing so begin a conversation about how mental health providers can better address issues of masculinity. My findings are that significant barriers to masculinity performance are caused by the diagnosis and treatment of SMI, leading to roll loss, subsequent stress, and strategic modification of masculinity performance to attain hegemonic complicity. I identify six emergent themes and three masculinities within the data, and offer a theoretical framework with recommendations for application and future research.
