Exploring the Masculine Prerogative through Art
by Emmanuel Whyte (US)
– What is masculinity and how is it measured? How has the general view of masculinity changed? To what extent has it been malleable?
– The ideas of gender conservatism, pluralism, and abolishism – To what extent is gender trapping, shaping, and/or constraining moral agency? Is, or can moral agency be liberated from gender tropes?
– Is “gender” ultimately obfuscating sex-based oppression toward women? If so, are there only positive ramifications of having an un-gendered conscience?
– Perhaps most importantly – Are there fundamental limitations on arguments surrounding gender: masculinity and femininity when we take various cultures into consideration?
