dc.description.abstract Working from a poststructuralist framework, using Butler’s theories on identity performance, this thesis uses content analysis to observe and report on normative and non-normative performances of masculinity and femininity on the reality television show, Jersey Shore. This thesis argues that the gendered performances of the Jersey Shore cast members are intersectional. In particular, the cast members’ gendered performances are heavily affected by their ethnicity, class, and geographic location (New Jersey, U.S.A.). This thesis unpacks the ways in which hegemonic gender embodiments are both reinforced and challenged through the Jersey Shore cast members’ performances on the show. en_US
