The deconstruction of masculinity crisis in Greece during the 1950s and 1960s has a central part in the research objectives of the current project. More precisely, the main research questions of my study are as follows: - How are hegemonic and subordinated types of masculinity represented in Greek popular films? - How are gender relations represented in Greek popular films? - What is the impact of cultural transfers on the cinematic representations of masculinity and gender relations? - How do films represent the negotiation of tradition with modernity with regard to changes in masculinity and gender relations? - How do the representations of masculinity and gender relations relate to those of class and locality? - How do cinematic representations of masculinity and gender relations connect to their historical context?
