This thesis represents an attempt to take an empirical 'snap-shot' of the range of ways in which male identity is constructed in both the media and in individual. representations of self These constructions of male identities are considered in the light of recent critical and social constrictions theory of gender and masculinity which addresses contradictions and tensions in male identities, to consider how male identities are constructed and negotiated in relation to women and other men. The thesis employed a social constructionist theoretical framework that both guided the use of methods (thematic analysis and Q-methodology) and allowed for this emergent identity constructions to be considered within the broader social, cultural, political and historical context. The implications of the findings for theory of male identities are discussed.
