Course Synopsis

This course explores the meaning and emergence of masculinity and aims to develop awareness about social construction of masculinities by using different theoretical lenses. There is not one version of masculinity but rather multiple masculinities influenced by gender, race, ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, disability and subcultures. This course will also explore the approaches to the study of men/masculinities and identify key concepts and issues for in-depth analysis.

Course Learning Outcomes

After completing the course, the students will be able to: • Introduce students to the study of men and masculinities. • Examine various approaches to the cross-cultural study of men and masculinities. • Examine the concept of masculinity/masculinities in the national/local context.
