Scandinavian women are often represented as independent and sexually liberated and the men as slightly effeminate metrosexuals who clean, cook, and care for their children. But what does it even mean to be masculine and feminine and how is it related to our bodies and intersect with sexuality, race, and class? This class explores how particular masculinities are expressed and negotiated in the lives of Scandinavian men and masculine women, and articulated in popular media, politics, literature, art, and commercials.
