French Post-Modern Masculinities
From Neuromatrices to Seropositivity
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
As traditional notions of masculinity have been called into question, representational reactions and articulations have swept postmodern cultures. Certain contemporary French cultural productions illustrate this shift in masculinities and this volume offers up the first comprehensive examination of their development. Acclaimed critic Lawrence R. Schehr analyzes AIDS narratives, mainstream films, popular novels, graphic narratives, and rightist polemics, among other genres, in order to explore the changing meaning of masculinity in French society, making this volume appealing to a broad range of researchers and students in a variety of fields.
