Abstract: This thesis looks at the relationship between Tamil cinema, hegemonic masculinity and fan clubs in Singapore. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the relationship between hegemonic masculinity and how it challenges or reproduces itself via performances of local Tamil fan clubs. The research unpacks the Singaporean Tamil hegemonic masculine identity by studying fan clubs and their behaviours. It first discusses the shaping of hegemonic masculine qualities by Tamil cinema and the impacts it can have on different masculinities. It will go on to unpack how fan clubs internalise these ideologies and perform aspects of hegemonic masculinities with regards to power and violence in both physical and digital spaces in Singapore. It ultimately discovers the intersectional understanding of hegemonic masculinity with regards to class, race and age and gender and how it creates different versions of the Singaporean Tamil hegemonic masculinity.
