Skrócony opis:

The aim of the course is to introduce the university student to the field of critical studies on men and masculinities (CSMM). CSMM should be seen as a part of broader field of gender studies, in which the main research subject are men as gendered human beings and changing masculinities models. During the course we will try to answer the questions: what it means that men have gender, how men’s gender is constructed and reconstructed in the social processes, what kinds of models of masculinities dominate today and what consequences different models of masculinity have for men in the contemporary social reality.

Pełny opis:

Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities (CSMM) has been a rapidly growing area of research within gender studies and feminist studies over recent decades. CSMM are based on feminist theories and methodologies. The aim of this course is to make student acquainted with CSMM and show them how to analyse men as gendered individuals. Men’s gender is often invisible and consequently ignored in social research. Men’s experiences are seen as ungendered and universal, whereas in fact men are as much gendered as women. They have to follow particular gender roles and behave in line with expectations imposed by the society. This has huge social consequences. Traditional models of masculinity are often connected with violence and risk behaviour, in these models men are expected not show emotional engagement and to be tough. The male identity is often presented as contrasting to female identity. Yet, in times of women’s emancipation and changing gender roles there is a need of critical reflection on prevailing masculinity models. The questions should be asked: are masculinity models changing? If yes, in which direction? If no, why not?

During this course we will look more carefully on different aspects of men’s lives and masculinity models in the contemporary social reality. We will try to answer the questions how male body is constructed in social processes, what consequences the dominant models of masculinity have on men’s health and why men are dying earlier than women, why they are more eager than women to engage in violence and risk behaviours and less eager to be involved parents and caregivers. Many of questions can be asked without using biological explanations. Additionally, it should be remembered that men are different and there are various models of masculinities. Masculinity intersects with various social dimensions, thus we will analyse men and masculinities in the context of different social classes, races, ethnicities, age, sexualities.
