“Walk It Off”: Feminism, Critical Media Literacy, and My Long Journey Away From Hypermasculinity
Inspired by the feminist adage that the personal is political, and by feminism's challenge to conventional forms of research, in this essay I explore my personal struggle with hypermasculinity and the ways cultural studies, feminist media studies, and critical media literacy have allowed me to explore the limitations of hegemonic masculine conventions in both my academic and personal life. This essay, therefore, is composed as a blend of personal reflection and academic analysis.
