Patriarchy, as defined by bell hooks, is a social disease. Hegemonic masculinity does not allow men to express their emotions, except through anger, violence and sex. Consequently, all who are in a relationship with men (parents, children, spouses, lovers, siblings, colleagues and friends) are likely to suffer from the manifestations of hegemonic masculine behavior, including the men themselves who must constantly repress their feelings.
gender studies and sexuality
This panel seeks to retheorize social constructivists accounts of Romantic sex and gender circulating since the early 80s that continue to persist and insist—however unwittingly—on a binaristic or universalistic normativity (hetero- or otherwise). Moreover, all such accounts are often firmly anthropocentric, offering little flexibility to engage the nonhuman in all of its material forms. More recent New Materialist accounts of sexes and genders provide resources for moving forward from the confines of the discursive prison of sex and gender that retains within it, again however unwittingly or unwillingly, a binarism between the social and the material, the human and the nonhuman.
