What, precisely, is masculinity? How does it correlate to space, class, ethnicity, sexuality? How are men expected to behave in private, social and political landscapes? These are compelling questions, of interest not just to sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, but also to individuals in all societies and cultures.

NeMLA2018 :Postcolonial South Asian Masculinities

updated: 
Wednesday, August 30, 2017 - 9:32pm
Amrita De SUNY Binghamton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Taking as its starting point R.W.Connel’s understanding of multiple variants of "hegemonic masculinities," this panel seeks to examine how masculinities are constructed across a vast spectrum of class, caste, and ethnic differences in South Asia. Borrowing from Stuart Hall’s theorization of "identity in process," this panel seeks to examine the idea of masculinity "in process" in post-colonial/post-imperial spaces like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. This panel seeks to examine different forms of fragile masculinities and aim to unpack their inextricable relationship with hegemonic practices. By doing so, this panel will examine how the idea of masculinity is heavily influenced by both local and contemporary neoliberal practices.

Adaptation studies was originally established with the intent to study  the manner in which cinematic texts altered their literary sources.  However, this concept has since expanded to engage with broader ideas of  how adaptation functions and the manner in which it has come to  interface with not only specific genres of literature, film, theatre,  media, and the digital, but also the narratives that underlie these in a  broader social, political, and historical sense (Raw and Gurr, 2013).  In fact, it is now maintained that the field is broad enough to be  conceptualised as an active determining process that affects almost  every aspect of our lives as we engage with the world around us.
