The institutionalization of (critical) studies on men and masculinities: Geopolitical perspectives

Jeff Hearn, Richard Howson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we examine the gradual and uneven institutionalization of explicitly gendered studies on men and masculinities, that is, the making, reproduction and change in more durable academic activities, structures and interventions, in universities, research projects, journals, book series, courses, and other formal initiatives. Whilst acknowledging our Anglophone bias, we seek to understand these developments within various geopolitical perspectives. The chapter also makes some connections with policy and activism, and to substantive and theoretical developments in critical studies on men and masculinities (CSMM), seen as a sub-field of gender studies.
