My thesis: "'I Celebrate Myself and Sing Myself': An Insight into Bob Dylan's Chameleonic-like Masculiity. Writings and Songs 1956 - 1970" is a critical study of singer, songwriter Bob Dylan that develops an innovative argument on the evolution of his professional career -his lyrics, music, and performances onstage- just like the alternative models of masculinity that challenged the hegemonic ideals of 'the breadwinner' and 'the soldier'.
