Critical studies on men and masculinities is a developing and interdisciplinary field of inquiry, flourished in association with the feminist and LGBTQ studies since its establishment in the 1980’s by the substantial efforts of authors such as Raewyn Connell, Michael Kimmel, Jeff Hearn, Victor Seidler and David Morgan among many others. This field is now elaborating and promoting its own issues and agendas. Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture, an internationally refereed journal which is published biannually in February and August by Initiative for Critical Studies of Masculinities (ICSM), is a part of these efforts.
