Men and Masculinities
7.5 ECTS credits
The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to masculinity studies and research on men and masculinities in gender studies. The course also introduces how masculinity studies developed, including its role and position in gender studies and its relation to theories on men and masculinities as they developed as part of scholarship in gender studies. These aspects are contextualised through analyses of men and masculinities in various social, technological, and historical contexts. The role of men and masculinities for societal development is explored in an international perspective through comparisons between different cultural contexts. The course is aimed at those who want insights into ways of understanding and exploring men and masculinities beyond common everyday assumptions about what a man is, on the one hand, and, on the other, those who wish to extend their knowledge of gender studies through an in-depth study of the specialised field masculinity studies.
