Men and masculinities

Jeff Hearn, David L. Collinson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


Diversity and management, and their intersections, are not often connected with critical analyses of men and masculinities, and certainly not routinely so. In contrast, this chapter focuses on some of the ways that critical analyses of men and masculinities have multiple implications for discussions on diversity and management, whether theoretical, research-based, policy-driven or practical, along with the associated questions of (in)equality, inclusion/exclusion, discrimination, and intersectionality. The chapter begins with a review of recent developments in critical studies on men and masculinities, as a sub-field of feminist, gender, women’s and queer studies. It continues with the implications of current debates for critical analyses of, first, men and masculinities in management and managing, second, diversity among men and masculinities, and, third, diversity management. International, intersectional and informational issues are highlighted.
