Constructing Narratives of Masculinity: Online Followers of Jordan B. PetersonPsychology of Men and Masculinities (2022)
Grounded in theorizations of the challenges associated with performing masculinities in the late-modern era, and the tensions between nativist/populist reclamations of masculinity and contemporary feminisms, the article examines how young men learn their masculinities. In an analysis of the followers of an online Reddit site devoted to Canadian psychologist, Jordan Peterson, the core objective of the article is heuristic: to map typical narratives and discourses of emerging masculinity among those searching for meaning and identity. Through a narrative political psychological approach using thematic analysis, four themes are identified and illustrated: the attentive acolyte, the angry brother, the abandoned son, and the admiring student.
