Doing Sex: Men, Masculinity and Sexual Practices

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 1:55pm
Chris Haywood, Newcastle University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 19, 2017

This colloquium aims to bring together the study of sexual practices and desires and critical studies of men and masculinities. We are explicitly interested in returning to some of the provocations of sexology in the twentieth century to think through men’s sexuality today. For Kinsey there is an inherent paradox in “man’s absorbing interest in sex and his astounding ignorance of it; his desire to know and his unwillingness to face the facts.” Whilst we can see some of the failings and problematics in Kinsey, Masters & Johnson, and other Sexologists, it is critical to reflect not simply as criticism of these, but also what they are suggestive and enlightening of.
