What makes a man a man? How is masculinity shaped by spaces, times, languages, and cultures? How are men expected to behave in public and in private? In addition to addressing these questions, the panel would like to explore the concept of masculinity and how this is constructed by social contexts and human relationships. To this day, numerous men are profoundly impacted by adolescent experiences, peer pressure, and expectations based on “male gender roles.” This session invites contributions about literature, theater, film, and other symbolic productions in Italy as related to the complex topic of masculinity.
