Deconstructing Men & Masculinities – Theoretical and Empirical Insights into Identities and Sexualities.

Half-day workshop with Anastasia Christou

Saturday morning, 16th Nov 11 am – 1.30 pm

At the Council’s learning Centre in the City Clean Refuse and Recycling Centre, Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton. BN1 7GA. Entrance gates opposite the Hollingbury Pub.

This half-day workshop is part of our Creative and Critical Research Methods course (see our Freegree handbook for details).

It 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 everyday 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.

All genders welcome.
