Over the past few years, there have been numerous books, articles,
special forums, films, and other types of media that have touched on the
issue of contemporary manhood and the traditions and changes associated
with masculinity. We are accepting proposals for an anthology that will
examine the topic of contemporary mediated masculinities. We are
particularly interested in proposals that explore the recent phenomena
that have been associated with the contemporary mediated man, such as,
but not limited to, the metrosexual man, the domestic dad, the post 9/11
man, the suburban man, men of color, the gay man, and the spaces between
and combinations of all of these masculinities. Essays that discuss,
race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, disabilities, relationships,
education, and related topics with a contemporary theme are especially
welcomed. We feel that such a project is most important given the
increasing attention given to contemporary maleness in all avenues of
