自《中國有嘻哈》2017年播出之後,嘻哈音樂和文化在中國走紅。第一季《中國有嘻哈》中的選手隨後引發了許多爭議,包括性醜聞、厭女、吸毒、反文化認同等。這些國家、媒體和消費者等多方參與的爭議在很大程度上都是有關道德標準的。本演講從男性氣質的角度來討論這一文化事件,進而豐富對中國性別研究和文化政治的見解。憑藉這個個案,是次演講一方面會呈現武俠文化和嘻哈文化的「混音」與男性氣質建構的緊密聯繫,另一方面討論道德的維度如何豐富和發展「霸權男性氣質」的概念框架。

Hip-hop music and culture have become popular in China since 2017, when the music competition show “The Rap of China” was aired. The popular contestants in the first season have subsequently sparked many controversies on topics such as sex scandals, misogyny, drug use, and countercultural identity. These controversies involved multiple parties, including the state, media, and consumers, and were largely moralistic in nature. This presentation will discuss this cultural event through the lens of masculinity and aims to cast insights into gender studies and cultural politics in China. Through this case study, the presentation will delve into the interconnections between the “remix” of martial arts and hip-hop culture and the construction of Chinese masculinity, and discuss how the dimension of morality enriches and develops the conceptual framework of “hegemonic masculinity”.
