The books shown below are the main sources of information that I will be utilising for my essay.

I read Constructing Masculinity, and found it really interesting but none of the information was really applicable to my essay.


Berger, M., Wallis, B., Watson, S. and Weems, C. (1995). Constructing masculinity. New York: Routledge.

Foote, P. and Wilson, D. (1970). The Viking achievement. New York: Praeger.

Spicer, A. (2001). Typical men. London: I.B. Tauris Publishers.

Ground work


After class today I went down to the library to make a start on my essay. I couldn’t find any of the books on the required reading list for writing an essay, so I can only assume someone else got them out before me. That, or I just didn’t see them.

So, I found these books instead, and found them rather helpful for breaking down the process of essay writing. The notes that I made from them are in my folder.

I had hoped to do my essay on something around gender, but any books covering that were about films in general rather than focussing on animation.

Once we are finished doing our animation in Creative Strategies I will venture back down, and narrow my focus on what exactly I want to write about.
