“His Slave or His Despot”: Contemporary Compulsory Heteromasculinity through the Lens of Leopold Sachor-Masoch’s “Venus in Furs”

“His Slave or His Despot”: Contemporary Compulsory Heteromasculinity through the Lens of Leopold Sachor-Masoch’s “Venus in Furs” Riggio, Melissa In this work I will examine how male heterosexuality is closely linked with “masculinity” (in the white Western dominant definition), and how the compulsory heteromasculinity of the Western World affects not only heterosexual men's relationships with women but also with other men, and ultimately how they view themselves in society. My main argument is that masculinity is inextricably associated with heterosexuality, and I support that argument with examples of studies in which men discuss how they feel compelled to be masculine to prove their heterosexuality, as well as pointing out the reflections of these thoughts in Austrian 19th century erotic novel "Venus in Furs", a book published in 1870 but still very reflective of the heteromasculine structure of contemporary Western men.

AutoCAD MEP Essential Training

Lynda.com - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 20:00
Authored By: Eric Wing

Released On: 7/18/2014

AutoCAD MEP helps you build the systems—mechanical, electrical, and plumbing—that connect buildings to the outside world. This course will help you draft, design, and document these systems using MEP's powerful toolset. Author Eric Wing touches on project setup, as well as external referencing and display configurations, before diving into individual modeling scenarios. In one chapter, he'll show how to create electrical power plans and lighting plans with receptacles and lighting fixtures. In the next, it's a mechanical plan, with rooftop units, VAV boxes, ducts, and diffusers. Last, you'll work on a plumbing plan and system. Then he ties the drawings together with smart tags and schedules, and creates section and elevation versions of your plans. Dive in now and learn to eliminate tedious drawing tasks while creating more accurate documentation with MEP.

Authored By: Gary Hustwit

Released On: 7/18/2014

On an average day, each of us uses hundreds of objects. (Don't believe it? Start counting: alarm clock, light switch, faucet, shampoo bottle, toothbrush, razor…) But who makes all these things, and why do they look and feel the way they do? How can good design make objects, and our lives, better?

Objectified is a documentary about industrial design; it's about the manufactured objects we surround ourselves with, and the people who make them. Gary Hustwit, the director of Helvetica, talks with Dieter Rams, Marc Newson, Jonathan Ive, and other renowned designers behind some of the world's most iconic products. lynda.com is proud to offer this film to our members, along with over one hour of online-exclusive bonus movies.
