The writer Daniel Pink prophesizes widely on what he describes as a cultural transition from our era—an "Age of Information," to an alleged "Age of Conception," a transition which has induced educators in British and in many Southeast Asian countries to attempt to inculcate creativity in their students in order to better prepare them for competition in the global marketplace. One symptom of this new age, the development of a global cyber network, or what Thomas Friedman calls the "Digital Platform," has given to each and every entrepreneur the potential to expand his or her trade and sale of services and products to consumers worldwide, making those marketplaces more competitive on a global scale.

Catherine Thomas and Jennifer Feather

How does understanding violence and masculinity as interrelated illuminate intersections between religious, national, sexual, ranked, or racial identities? Excellent scholarship in gender studies over the past several decades has emphasized the extent to which masculinity has been an under-examined norm and stressed the many forms masculinity takes in the early modern period. This collection builds on those efforts by interrogating how masculinity and violence are specifically linked and by considering the ways multiple identity categories simultaneously influence constructions of masculinity.
