  • Influences of Emerging Beauty Industry for Men on Construction of
           Masculinities of Male Students of Dhaka City

    • Authors: Abu Saleh Mohammad Sowad
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: Back in history, muscular and strong male body has always been used to promulgate masculinity. This idealized male figure was proliferated mainly for spreading the notion of male superiority in relation to power and to give a strong base to the social construction of masculinity. This study targets to disclose the perception about the attributes masculinities among the male students of Dhaka city regarding male beautification. It attempts to unveil young men’s perspectives regarding their masculinities and beauty. From history we can see men have always been assumed as the ambassador of roughness but in recent time the emergence of fashion-conscious men can be seen, who are slowly occupying a handsome position in the society. Concerning study attempts to bring out the way in which such changing trend of male beauty is perceived among the male students of Dhaka city. What could be the ideologies of these young men who are being involved with it? What is influencing them to be part of such arena which, to a great extent, is still considered as female domain? Is their perception about construction of masculinity is shifting from the so called idealized masculinity? The study tries to find out the answers.

  • Between Vietnam and 9/11: Arnold Schwarzenegger and a New Type of
           Masculinity in Twins and Kindergarten Cop

    • Authors: Tatiana Prorokova
      Pages: 17 - 38
      Abstract: In this article, I argue that the 1990s was a culturally pivotal period in the history of the U.S., trapped between the Vietnam War and 9/11. Therefore, realization and representation of such a phenomenon as “masculinity” in the 1990s differs considerably from its portrayal before the decade had started and after it was over. I demonstrate that with the release of Twins (1988) and Kindergarten Cop (1990), Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new hero of the 1990s, showcasing that masculinity of the 1990s was multifaceted. I contend that in the 1990s male masculinity was not defined by the notions of power, aggressiveness, and emotionless anymore, on the contrary, vulnerability, devotion, and care were the aspects that characterized it.

  • Analysis of Male "Anger" in the Context of Violence against Women in order
           to Design a Framework for Construction of Responsibility

    • Authors: Luis Botello Lonngi
      Pages: 39 - 61
      Abstract: This article proposes a particular way of approaching male affection in the process of "anger" of men in the context of violence. In this framework, we proceed to the identification of the mechanisms that cause that the violence of men remains invariably. We intend to show how certain emotions emerge as an important source of interactive knowledge. We propose the analysis of these emotions as dynamic elements in the exchanges between subjects in their daily relationships, as well as in the establishment of autonomy and decision-making. Finally, we discuss how the emotional dimension in men can participate in the construction of what we call approximate responsibility to deal with the hegemonic male rules and to disable mechanisms of oppression.

  • Male Presence in Gender Research Networks in the Communication Field in

    • Authors: Francisco Javier Caro González, Virginia Guarinos
      Pages: 62 - 90
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to learn about the scientific productivity and collaboration of authors who have published papers on gender in Spanish communication journals by paying special attention to the role played by men. The citation network was analysed in order to identify the researchers network and the participation of men therein. The hypotesis put forward is that men have a secondary role in scientific communities that research gender in the communication field. Methodologies from the analysis of social network were applied. The information extracted was analysed using Ucinet software. It was confirmed that men have a marginal role in the network and that women tend to cite other women in their publications
