Hegemonic Masculinity and Emotions

Dominic DiPietra Butler University
Faculty Sponsor(s): Kenneth Colburn Butler University
The purpose of this study is to gain a further understanding of how both men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 view the topic of hegemonic masculinity and how they think men should display emotions. My primary goal with this research is to ascertain whether or not men are still displaying hegemonic tendencies and how that correlates with the amount of emotions men are allowed to display. My secondary goal is to look at the responses from female participants to understand from the point of view of a college aged female, how she expects men to portray their emotions in this very volatile and politically correct time in society. Participants will answer a total of thirty questions from an online survey conducted via Survey Monkey. Five of the questions are basic demographic questions, ten questions relate to hegemonic tendencies and ten relate to the display of emotions. Participants were acquired by convenient sampling and the snowball effect and were all in some way, shape, or form related to Butler University.
