Abstract

This article explores popular cultural themes of masculinity and mobility in the context of post-race and "end of men" discourses. Our attention is focused on sites of everyday culture, taking note of the tropes by which white male authority is fantastically recuperated through culinary entertainment. We read films such as Chef and television reality series such as Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives as sites of a re-terrorialization of white masculinity, exploring the nostalgic resonance of the road-trip and fantasies of mobility and plenty in a social/cultural context of privation and inequality.
