Things I Learned at the Utopian Studies Conference
One paper discussed the uncertain masculinity in Diamonds are Forever, a destabilization of the James Bond character as was seen in the previous and subsequent movies. Anyone out there read it this way?
Another paper on Fight Club, of course, explored similar themes. Is male comradeship, as seen in the scene where Meatloaf is embraced, also a sign of destabilized masculinity.
