SOCL 3340 - Men and Masculinities

5 credit hours
This course offers a scociological examination of men as gendered beings and masculinity as a cultural construction that is implicated in identity, language, and social structure. The history of the academic study of masculinity is reviewed as are the roots of men’s studies in feminism. Masculinities are examined as multiple and existing in fluid, contested power relations with women and other men. The intersection of masculinties with other axes of stratification (e.g., race, class, sexuality), masculinities not tied to male bodies, and masculinites beyaond the gender binary are also examined.
