A Gender Observation of the Portrayal of Masculinities in ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ by Lil Nas X – Heidi Hafner

This blog series showcases the student winners of the Yuan Changying Prize, sponsored by GENDER.ED and SPS’s Gender Politics Research Group. The prize recognises outstanding ‘gender observations’ written by students (and nominated by tutors) in the pre-Honours course Understanding Gender in the Contemporary World, convened by Dr. Meryl Kenny and Dr. Sarah Liu. Gender observations require students to link material from the course to their own day-to-day experiences and observations of ‘doing gender’. The prize is named after Yuan Changying in consultation with students, in recognition of the first female Chinese graduate in the University of Edinburgh’s history. In the first of two winning essays, Heidi Hafner explores the portrayal of masculinities in ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ by Lil Nas X.
