WGS 220 - Masculinities


Credit(s): 3
The course introduces students to main categories, topics, and research of masculinity studies. Through theoretical readings and discussions of popular culture, we will focus on the central debates around men and masculinities. We will examine the following questions:

  • How is masculinity constructed and maintained in society?
  • How do we learn to be men and play masculinity in everyday life?
  • How do race, class, ethnicity, and sexuality affect our masculinities?
  • What is the relationship between masculinity and sexed bodies?
  • Analyzing male sexuality, intimacy, violence, homophobia, and gender equality, we will pay considerable attention to different forms of masculinity and masculinity politics in the contemporary world.
