This CFP is for the Permanent Section "Gender Studies: Male" at the 2011 M/MLA Convention in St. Louis, MO.

Topic: Men at Work, Men at Play

This panel calls for papers that address contemporary representations of men in the workplace or male camaraderie in American literature and popular culture. We're particularly interested in essays that explore the ways writers unsettle dominant notions of masculinity -- sexually, racially, domestically -- in contemporary fiction, film, or television. Feel free to interpret "the workplace" or the social spaces of camaraderie broadly.
