Description

This chapter develops a discussion on the gender and racial coding of pain in the modern Eurowest. To do this I examine the 2003 events at Abu Ghraib. Captured on camera are what appears to be the ritualized torture and humiliation of a number of Iraqi prisoners. It is my intention to make visible the link between pain, evoked through torture, white masculinity, and the racialized other demonstrating ho ritualized pain determines proper and improper masculinities.
