CFP: Gender in the Golden 80s (Film & History conference 6/1/14; 10/29/14)

The 1980s is its own “golden age” of film when considering the idea/ls of gender contained within its borders. The era indulged representations of high-testosterone masculinity (such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Bruce Willis) and vulnerable femininity (such as Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy). And, while films of the decade were also capable of imagining men who were strong and sensitive (like Eric Stoltz in Some Kind of Wonderful, Rob Lowe in About Last Night, and Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club), there were far fewer roles for women that broke from stereotypically feminized characterizations (like Linda Hamilton in Terminator, Lea Thompson in Back to the Future, and Demi Moore in St. Elmo’s Fire).
