Rethinking Hegemonic Masculinity: The “Remix” of Chinese Hip-hop

2021/22 School of Chinese Research Student Seminar

Rethinking Hegemonic Masculinity: The “Remix” of Chinese Hip-hop

Speaker: Mr. JI Zhifan 紀志帆

Date & Time: Dec 10, 2021 (Fri) 5:30-6:45pm
Venue: CPD-LG.59, LG/F, Central Podium, Centennial Campus
Language: Putonghua


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”.
