Men and masculinities

29 10 2004

helsinki.gifI’m back from a three day course on Men and Masculinities in Helsinki. It was quite interesting with a lot of time for feedback on your own work. The lectures ranged from the history of critical studies on men to the man as a cyborg machine. I met a lot of interesting and fun people, and learned a lot. You can see all the courses here.

Men and Masculinities
The aim of the course is to give an advanced introduction to critical studies on men and masculinities. An overview of currently important theoretical approaches will be presented and discussed, along with their intersections with other related debates, such as those on globalisation, patriarchy, postcolonialism, queer theory. The course will also examine more specific issues, such as men’s and boys’ relations to education; class, race and ethnicity; organisations, management, technology; migration; violence; representations of men.
