Modern military power has ignited real and virtual changes as nations make war and soldiers perceive themselves as warriors. The role of the soldier has changed with the evolution of technologies, such as drones. Is the hyper-masculine "be-all-you-can-be" soldier being replaced? Suzanne will discuss the role of "masculinity" in contemporary warfare and the development of the new "cyborg" soldier.
