CFP: Edited Collection on Masculinity and Gender in Sons of Anarchy

Editor: Susan Fanetti, California State University, Sacramento

 

Through its seven-season run, from 2008-2014, Sons of Anarchy celebrated and contemplated the world of outlaw bikers and became a cultural phenomenon in its own right. Creator and showrunner Kurt Sutter’s modern-day retelling of Hamlet became and continues to be the highest-rated show in FX’s network history, and for that achievement, Sutter was, in later seasons, granted unprecedented leeway to tell his story in his way.

“Those who labour in the earth are the chosen people of God, if ever he had a chosen people…” (Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XIX). This quote from Thomas Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia (1785) represents an attitude towards agriculture and specifically the family farm that remains influential in the United States today. Connection to the land is still viewed as sacred even as less people work on the land as farmers and ranchers (two percent according to the last census) and environmentalists struggle to reclaim the “soul” of agriculture from the industrial interests that have reshaped farming and the American farmer.
