Masculinities: Trans/forming Men

About Gender, International Journal of Gender Studies,  is a peer-reviewed international journal which aims to represent a reference point for scholars, academics and non-academics engaged in research and reflection on gender, with an interdisciplinary view. AG intends to enhance the dialogue between interpretative approaches and different analytical perspectives.


Masculinities: Trans/forming Men: Changes, Resiliences and Reconfigurations.

Edited by: Krizia Nardini (Universitat Obierta de Catalunya) and Stefano Ciccone (Università di Genova).

Scholarship on masculinities is now reaching more than three decades of research on men’s practices and imaginaries. In this journey, current productions in critical studies of men and within men’s antisexist activism offer different dialogues with feminist activisms and academic positionings.

Deconstructing the symbolic location of normative masculinity, as the model of hegemonic subject of western modernity, is relevant in order to understand current changes when it comes to nationhood, neoliberal citizenship and political subjectivity.

We are interested in the interactions between material-discursive processes, looking at the relations between subjectivity, corporeality and sexuality, with the aim of understanding social change, resiliences and reconfigurations.

The papers must be written in one of the two languages – Italian/English – in which the journal is edited, and sent within the deadline of the 15th October 2016.
