1. Barnes, Christopher. Ungoverned Masculinities: Gendered Discourses of Neoliberalism in The Sopranos and Breaking Bad.

Degree: Department of Communication and Journalism, 2015, University of New Mexico

This thesis examines the discursive intersections of neoliberalism and masculinity on The Sopranos and Breaking Bad through a critical discourse analysis in order to illuminate larger sociocultural issues concerning contemporary masculinity. The Sopranos and Breaking Bad are praised in contemporary discourse as 'artistic achievements,' and the following project interrogates particular moments in both texts that construct gendered discourses of neoliberalism, relying on the theoretical foundations of hegemonic masculinity. Through my analysis, I establish key moments when discourses about masculinity intersected with and connected to discourses about neoliberalism. Additionally, this project analyzes moral dimensions of neoliberalism within sociocultural discourse centering on The Sopranos and Breaking Bad. I determine that the lines between entrepreneur and criminal have blurred as a product of neoliberal politics and economics, and argue that sociocultural discourse about the programs prioritizes profit making above socially responsible ethics and morality. Advisors/Committee Members: Weiss, David, Martinez Guillem, Susana, Rodriguez Nazario, Ilia.

Subjects/Keywords: Neoliberalism; Hegemonic Masculinity; The Sopranos; Breaking Bad
