Transforming Gender Identity Through Breaking
Chapter, Peer reviewed
MetadataVis full innførsel
This chapter explores the negotiation of gender within the physical culture of breaking (which is better known as “breakdancing”). Specifically, using Barker-Ruchti et al.’s (2016) conceptualization of crossing, shifting and transforming gender in physical cultures, I investigate how male breakers challenge and reinforce dominant gender practices and expectations within the field of Norwegian breaking.
