About this blog

by brandontlocke

I’m a graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, studying 20th century American History, Digital Humanities, and Women and Gender Studies. My MA thesis (in progress) examines depictions of masculinity in movies, comic books, and manuals produced by the US military from 1940-1963.

After lots of encouragement from Brian SarnackiJason Heppler, and Dan Cohen, (via this post), I realized I have waited far too long to put together a blog. I will be posting some reviews and papers from my coursework, as well as some thoughts on my fields of interest and my MA thesis. I’ve really been enthused by the amount of feedback some  of my colleagues have received, so some of my posts may read as much like a question in a forum as they do a blog post.
