There is nothing new or intrinsically ‘good’ or ‘bad’ about studying men and masculinities: ‘it ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it.’ Doing Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities (CSMM) presents continuities and discontinuities with other research approaches, both non-feminist and feminist. Studying men raises recurring issues of methods and methodology. Many different research methods have been used in these studies, including social surveys; statistical analyses; ethnographies; interviews; memory work; qualitative, discursive, deconstructive, textual and visual analyses; as well as mixed methods.
