Course description:
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.

The course will include both lecture/plenary sessions and group sessions, where students will be given the opportunity to present the theoretical framework of their own doctoral research and receive comments from teachers and co-participants.
