Routledge_International_Handbook_of_Masculinity_Studies.JPG

The Routledge International Handbook of Masculinity Studies provides a contemporary critical and scholarly overview of theorizing and research on masculinities as well as emerging ideas and areas of study that are likely to shape research and understanding of gender and men in the future. The forty-eight chapters of the handbook take an interdisciplinary approach to a range of topics on men and masculinities related to theoretical frameworks, identities, sexualities, culture, aesthetics, technology and pressing social issues. The handbook’s transnational lens acknowledges both the localities and global character of masculinity. A clear message in the book is the need for intersectional theorizing in dialogue with feminist, queer and sexuality studies in making sense of men and masculinities. 

Please join us in celebration at a colloquium in which a number of authors speak to their chapters. This colloquium will address issues about the past and the future of critical men and masculinity studies.
