Abstract

Men have long dominated public, and indeed also private, agendas. Much of what is called politics, research and public discourse more generally has been centrally about men, often overwhelmingly so — an unnamed, obvious but strangely invisible, process — an absent presence.1 Men, masculinity and men’s powers and practices have typically been taken-for-granted. Gender has largely been seen as a matter of and for women; men were generally seen as ungendered, natural or naturalised.
