Project: In pursuit of masculinity. Constructions of masculinity in the work of Ernest Hemingway and David Herbert Lawrence

project duration
01-OCT-06 – 30-SEP-11
abstract
This project investigates how characters in the works of Lawrence and Hemingway try to find a foundation for their masculinity. The theoretical framework for this research is Judith Butler's gender theory, so that not only will the literary corpus be analysed from a new angle, but also will the validity of "queer theory" as a reading method be tested.
