Popular Culture Examples

Here are two examples from popular culture which exemplify the type of representation of the sexes that our course novels engage with.
  1. Watch both of these television advertisements.
  2. Consider how they both represent masculinity.
  3. Make a choice of one or the other.
  4. Analyse your selection in detail—frame-by-frame if necessary.
  5. Prepare a five-minute presentation that makes a strong thesis claim and support that claim with a description of a precise visual or oral component of the advertisement.
Example One, (British): "Shut up, Steve." (overdubbed American voices.)
Example Two, (American): "Where does he train to take a beating like that?"
