Facilitator Anastasia Christou
10.30am – 1.30pm Saturday 18 November 2017
Learning Resource Centre at the City Clean Depot, Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton. BN1 7GA
This half day workshop will explore constructions, narrations, mediations and experiential representations of men and masculinities drawing on ethnographic research, media discourse, interdisciplinary academic accounts and historical analysis shaping public discourse about masculine identities and sexualities.
The discussion will examine concepts and will connect academic theory with every day life issues in a wide-ranging exploration of masculine identities, past and present, in developing a holistic approach to understanding the contemporary challenges involved in the cultural critiques and redefinitions of masculinities. Concepts such as male femininity, metrosexualities, white privilege, hegemonic masculinity, transhumanism, liquid masculinities, masculinity in sports culture, masculinity crisis, misandry, residual patriarchy, laddism, etc. will be explored in bridging academic research with current global issues.
