The Profession of Arms: Ideological Codes and Dominant Narratives of Gender in the Canadian Military
AbstractThis article discusses the ways in which specific Canadian military policies work as boss texts that construct a gendered narrative of the military as a way of life. This narrative is perpetuated through the ideological codes of duty, honour, and service before self. Résumé Cet article discute des façons dont des politiques militaires canadiennes spécifiques fonctionnent comme textes modèles qui construisent une narration du militaire basé sur la différence entre les hommes et les femmes comme un mode de vie. Cette narration est perpétuée par le truchement de codes de devoir idéologiques, de l’honneur, et du service avant soi-même.
