Eng 111 Lecture 6 Jan.20.10 Oaludah Equiano and Masculinity/Masculinities- Guest Speaker: Jamie Paris Masculinity, a thing of the past? o Masculinity has changed over the years due to societal pressures, feminism, social- cultural roles o Many believe that values of patriarchy have been better in the past ie. “In the old days, being a man was…” The essence to being a “man” seems to be known universally o Being a man is often associated with certain limitations ie. Men are psychologically and emotionally limited how does being a man affect what it is to be human? It is often noted that white men raped black women but what of the inverse between black men and white women? o Theme: Suppression of black male sexuality ie. The “Am I not a man and a brother” medallion: this black man is wearing a white loin cloth--but not for modesty is sex the same as gender? - is it a binary division or are there certain connotations to being a man or a woman ? Is being a man simply not being a woman?
