Notes From the Field is a series of updates from Antioch College faculty members about the travel and research they’ve conducted.
As a collaborative effort, Dr. Jennifer Grubbs (Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology) and Dr. Téofilo Espada-Brignoni (Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology) organized a panel with Asher Ruck ’22 and Ka’Dae Brockington ’22 at the 42nd Annual conference at the Organization for the Study of Language, Communication, and Gender.
Their panel, Producing Music and Masculinities: A Transdisciplinary Dismantling, interrogated the ways in which masculinities are constructed and reified in popular culture. Specifically, this engaging discussion examined multiple genres of music through the lens of both anthropology and social psychology. The conversation was predicated on the intersectional construction of masculinities, with particular attention to race and ethnicity, class, and sexuality.
