Rivalrous Masculinities Now On Display

Humanities Writ Large

One of the inaugural Emerging Humanities Networks funded by HWL, Rivalrous Masculinities, has just launched a virtual exhibition. The seven students who completed Professor Ann Marie Rasmussen's Fall 2012 course, Rivalrous Masculinities: Changes in Images of the Male Body Over Time, began a project that has considerable reach into the future. As one of the core assignments for the class, the students researched objects in the collection of the Nasher Museum, built a database of this information, and have now provided the virtual "wall text" for an online exhibit.

When the course is offered again in Fall 2013, the students in that section will add to this exhibit while also curating a physical exhibition at the Nasher to be mounted in Spring 2014.
