NORMA is an international and interdisciplinary journal for research concerning masculinity in its many forms. Concerned with questions about the body, about social and textual practices, and about men and masculinities in social structures, NORMA aims to advance theory and methods in this field and hopes to present new themes for critical studies of men and masculinities.

Current Call for Papers
CfP: Men, Masculinities, and Reproduction
How can scholars conceptualize men, masculinities, and reproduction? How might research on reproduction contribute to the theoretical and empirical development of masculinity studies? What have trajectories for research on men, masculinities, and reproduction looked like in the past and what might they look like in the future? In this call for papers, on behalf of NORMA the guest editors Rene Almeling, Assoc. Prof. of Sociology, Yale University and Sebastian Mohr, Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies, Karlstad University, seek submissions on the topic of “Men, Masculinities, and Reproduction.” We will interpret the theme broadly, and are thus open to submissions from a wide variety of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, regions, and methodologies (historical, qualitative, quantitative, demographic, etc.). In particular, we encourage submissions that theorize the relationship between reproduction and masculinities and/or examine the historical and social dimensions of cis and trans* reproductive bodies, lives, and experiences. We understand the term reproduction to include a broad range of biological, bodily/material, and social processes, which might include (but are not limited to) such topics as reproductive health and capacities, conception, pregnancy, birth, contraception, abortion, infertility, and reproductive technologies (IVF, surrogacy, gamete donation, etc).
Interested authors should send an abstract (250 words) and a short author-bio (200 words) to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by the 30th of June, 2019. Authors will receive notifications by the 7th of July. Full paper submissions according to NORMA’s guidelines (click here for more information) will be due by the 6th of October, 2019 for the journal’s double-blind peer-review process. Review responses can be expected at the beginning of December 2019. Depending on editorial decisions and revisions, final papers will be due by the beginning of March 2020.
