1 Citation (Scopus)


This chapter examines debates about four relevant aspects of studies of transnational men and masculinities: the national; the comparative; the global; and the transnational. It emphasizes that the nation and nationalism persist as important influences in the creation and perpetuation of specific modes and models of masculinity. The chapter discusses the heories of the global and the local combine in analyzing how the macro-geographical and macro-historical trends of thought translate onto gender relations, men and masculinities. It explores the transnational and different aspects in the operation and deconstruction of transnational patriarchies, transnational men, and transnational masculinities. Transnationalism and transnationalizations emphasize multiple, often hybrid processes and institutions across geographical, cultural, and political borders. There are many ways in which transpatriarchal powers and processes develop and change, bringing extensions of power for some men and loss of power and privilege for other men.
