• This project is the result of my own anxieties, constant observations and interest in the social factors that restrict self acceptance. It features a collection of articles, personal notes, thoughts, and ideas that developed while researching masculinity. The content addresses the development and diffusion of different deeply rooted masculine ideas found in our society. Along side these articles are interviews from fellow male classmates with different backgrounds and outlooks. The final book was displayed during the FIT 2016 Senior Show.
