La Mirada Estrábica: Visiones Políticas de la Masculinidad en la Era K
MetadataShow full item record
Inter-gender violence was noted to have increased in Argentina after the Menem period [1989-1999] and continued to increase under the Kirchners' Administrations - N鳴or Kirchner [2003-2007] and his wife Cristina Fernᮤez [2007-2011]-. The way the Argentine media broadcasted gender violence and thus contributed to the construction "hegemonic masculinities" [1993, 1998, 2005] is particularly striking. There seems to be a discourse based on transgression and permanent confrontation. Evidence of this is found in the cultural production of this period: film, television, music and literature. These cultural products present a clearly identifiable "male gaze" that underlines conservative and sexist ideas. Based on Connell's concept of hegemonic masculinities, this study analyses these trends in several sectors of popular culture production in the period 2003-2011
