Courses: Among Men: Construction of Masculinities (ANTHH202A01)

Fall 2013

A comparative exploration of the socio-cultural politics of gender, with particular reference to masculinity, the course combines an intellectual historical approach, i.e. how the related notions of maleness, manhood and masculinity have featured in the history of social thought, and a thematic focus on issues such as the men's movements, popular culture, queer movement, etc. While the course will be grounded on an anthropological notion of the social basis of power, culture and identity formation, the readings will nonetheless be interdisciplinary -- including historical narratives, literature and film ethnographies (from Africa and the United States) and critical work from fields such as queer, feminist and postcolonial studies.
