Working Group on Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities

Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities (CSMM) has been a rapidly growing area of research within Feminist Studies and Gender Studies over recent decades. This research area analyses men and masculinities in explicitly gendered, and often intersectional, ways in a wide variety of specific local, national and transnational contexts. It builds on extensive international, comparative and postcolonial research in Europe and beyond, and represents a longstanding development of national, Nordic, European and international research, research networks and collaborations.

The main research orientation in this area highlights both the naming and the deconstruction of men and masculinities. This research area aims to develop further studies and explorations of: theorising men and masculinities; transnational change around men and masculinities; and men and masculinities in relation to boyhood, digitalisation, emotions, environment, family, history, knowledge production, love, media, music, organisations, patriarchal forms, sexuality, sport, technology, trans* experiences, violence, work, and other empirical, cultural and policy questions.
