Abstract: In a multi-dimensional explanation of the persistence of war, it is crucial to understand how normative masculinity is constructed and how it encourages war as an ultimate expression of the desired traits of normative masculinity. The warrior in many societies is a hero, a realization of the finest, strongest traits of masculinity. At some level it is hard not to respect and admire this ideal.
This paper presents a discussion of the training of warriors to negate their own experiences and judgments and act like young children rather than adults in the face of powerful authority. Steel will and ruthlessness are prized over compassion and caring. Special attention is paid to the concept of fearlessness in men and the reality of a host of fears, of women, homosexuals, straight men, softness, kindness, nurturance, support, affection, critical judgment, change itself, and much more, in the desperate effort to present oneself to oneself and others as adequately or exceptionally, masculine.

Abstract: Nicki Minaj is the best-selling female rap artist of all time. Our analysis of her unprecedented impact on popular culture is organized in four sections: Real Bodies, Real Blackness, Real Intimacy, and Real Feminism. In “Real Bodies,” we argue that Minaj has created her body as a product in and of itself, to be sold and consumed in the growing entertainment industry. We call this strategy the “body-product.” In “Real Blackness,” we describe the ways that Minaj’s representations of black identity both reinforce and challenge mainstream ideologies of blackness. Her focus on her body as an object for consumers, as a body-product, fits squarely into a larger historical tradition of the trafficking in black women’s bodies. By claiming to be “Black Barbie,” she embraces a long time anti-feminist symbol, while she simultaneously pushes back against the regime of white beauty. In “Real Intimacy,” we investigate the many ways that Minaj has created a unique sense of intimacy with her fan base. The intimacy is largely created through web 2.0 strategies where fans can participate in what we call, “body occupation.” Her fans, often called Barbz and Kens (after Mattel’s Barbie doll) can occupy or try on Minaj’s body by uploading their own photos and digitally inserting parts of Minaj’s body. Finally, in “Real Feminism,” we analyze how Minaj’s use of the term “bitch,” her adoption of the “Black Barbie” moniker, and her extremely controversial video, “Stupid Ho” all engage feminist discourse and practice in ambivalent and surprising ways.

"An Empirical Analysis of the Effect of Real-Name System on Internet Bulletin Boards: Focusing on How the Real-Name System and Users' Characteristics Influence the Use of Slanderous Comments and Abusive Language" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Suntec City, Singapore, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p408096_index.html>

Abstract: This study aims to explore the effects of Internet Real Name Verification Law("the Law" hereinafter) by analyzing the numbers and contents of writings, and comparing the writing and comments replying to the writing before and after the implementation of the Law. It has been found to change the users' pattern of writing, as the number of writings and comments decreased, as well as the number of users, who posts writings. Meanwhile, the number of writing deletion increased. Although the usage of slanderous comments and abusive language in writings did not decrease after the Law, users' characteristics influenced the contents of the writings. But the effect of the Law appears valid for comments. In cases of writings containing slanderous remarks or abusive language, the comments made to those writings tend to contain such remarks. Also, the comments with slanderous remarks or abusive language that responded to such writings decreased after the Law, while the comments with abusive language made to writings without such words did not decrease. The result of this research suggests that the role of individual users as well as the role of the legal system, should be both considered in an effort to influence the users' communication and behavior.

4. Pinseler, Jan. "Real Crimes – Real Power. Crime Investigation Programmes As Immunisation of Hegemonic Discourse" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p170346_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Crime Investigation Programmes are one of the oldest and one of the most emphatic forms of reality programming. Having been first developed in West Germany in the late 1960s, shows like the German “Aktenzeichen XY. ungelöst”, the British “Crimewatch UK” or “America’s Most Wanted” in the US show so called re-enactments of real crimes with the declared aim to solve these crimes with the help of their viewers. Giving a voice to victims of crime one could think that these programmes offer possibilities for non-hegemonic readings. But instead, it will be argued, Criminal Investigation Programmes use techniques of producing authenticity for immunising hegemonic discourse. Thereby, the current social order is legitimised as natural and not shown as a result of social struggles of groups with conflicting interest. Since these programmes use quite a few strategies of producing authenticity, the viewer is rarely able to distance her/himself from the fact that the crime really has happened and therefore an oppositional reading is barely possible.

Abstract: To challenge the reductive and pervasive body-at-risk discourse in physical culture, in this paper, I suggest that museum exhibitions could offer a lens through which the public might recognize and re-imagine young people’s diverse expressions of their physicality. The Moving in my World exhibition organized at the New Walk Museum & Art Gallery, Leicester, UK was the culmination of a two-year visual participatory ethnography conducted with young people in state-funded, inner-city secondary schools in the British Midlands. This research project was funded by Economic Social Research Council, UK. The focus of this paper is to discuss the Moving in My World photography exhibition of young people in physical culture. In particular, I explore how that exhibition created a pedagogical alternative to the hidden curriculum of healthism in schools, making the young people’s diverse subjective forms of embodiment visible to the public.
