This course examines the many intersections of masculinities through a social constructionist lens. We will explore the diverse lives of men as we frame hegemonic (normative) vs. marginalized masculinities in contemporary Western culture. We will investigate boyhood, masculinities and the media, masculinities and violence, college masculinities, health and masculinities, masculinities and relationships, masculinities and disabilities, masculinities and sexualities, masculinities and gender identities, masculinities and families, masculinities and work, and masculinities and activism.
