Political Masculinities in Slovenia: Comrades, Heroes and Real Men

The following paper deals with masculinities in the political field and analyses representations of different types of masculinities that we evaluated as being commonly present in Slovene politics between 1945 and 2016. We will be examining the ways in which political masculinities in Slovenia have formed through different time periods and homosocial circumstances, the attributes of those masculinities and their means of sustaining their domination of the political field, maintaining the status quo and preventing “different types” of masculinities (particularly those marginalized and subordinated) and femininities from entering “their” field. The analysis of the representations of masculinity employed by the most prominent politicians will be based on written memories, media content and historical analysis of specific time periods.
