    Abstract

    Television drama has been a key site to investigate masculinities. This article examines Hinterland/Y Gwyll (S4C, BBC, 2013-2016) in order to understand the interrelationship between critiques of masculinities and the construction of post-national imaginations of the nation. It draws largely on Saskia Sassen’s work (1996;1999; 2003) on the post-national, developments of R.W. Connell’s (1987) theorisation of hegemonic masculinity and Raymond Williams’s (1977) conceptualisation of ‘dominant’, ‘residual’ and ‘emerging’ forms of culture in order to understand how the programme imagines the emergence of a new, post-patriarchal Wales.
