Masculinities have been created and codified by every aspect of society, and have been embodied in everything from images of cave men to the Ken doll. Much of this creation depends upon the stifling of manifestations of masculinities that, over time, fluctuate in terms of social acceptability and utility. This volume will interrogate classic and contemporary cultural products in order to expose and explore how and why masculinities have been censored as “toxic” or are increasingly being silenced in other ways. The collection seeks to offer a mindful engagement with the rapidly evolving field of masculinity studies and the emergent crises facing masculinities of all kinds.
