Tropical Knights: Chivalry and Masculinity in Malory and Hawaii Five-0
Halmstad University, School of Education, Humanities and Social Science, Contexts and Cultural Boundaries (KK).
2015 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The works of Malory portray a masculinity which is based on prowess in combat and desire for a more or less unattainable woman. Despite this, the masculinity is deeply concerned with homosocial desire verging on the homoerotic, and with discussing emotional experiences. Similarly, the masculinity of Hawaii Five-0 (2010) is based in shared violence, but diverges from the standard type of masculinity portrayed in cop shows by including homoerotic elements as well as the discussion of emotional experiences. Thus, Hawaii Five-0 is not only groundbreaking but in fact reinvents a masculinity which was once unremarkable in a work of chivalry.
