Project Proposal

Posted by emodjsteph in Uncategorized  Tagged ,

I will be working with Mohamed for this project and we will be looking at men’s reactions to the threat of being called homosexual to their masculinity. We will be focusing on age groups 18-27, 28-37 and 38-50 and we will take ethnicity and religion into factor. We will be conducting interviews with photo elicitation.

We are curious to see the difference in reaction between the age groups towards the effect of homosexuality on their masculinity. We will ask them questions about the way homosexuality influences their own sense of masculinity (Whether or not being called ‘gay’ or mistaken for being gay offends their masculinity). Then we will show them photos of a wide range of men deviating from the heterosexual norm into the homosexual stereotype.

    This topic seems very interesting because most men are very conscious about their masculinity and it usually means a lot to them. Maybe you can also incorporate gay men who don’t dress the way most people assume a gay man to dress. Just as an idea to maybe toss around

    Thanks. Yeah, hopefully we’ll be able to find some pictures of gay men that aren’t stereotypically gay and use them as part of the photos we show during the interview

    Good! See my comments to Mohamed’s proposal. I like Rachel’s idea! Just make sure you don’t rely too much on stereotypes — that might lead to your participants responding in stereotypical ways, too.
