Masculinities in Women's Studies: Special Issue of Women's Studies an Interdisciplinary Journal

updated: 
Friday, March 12, 2010 - 2:26pm
Daniel Farr, guest editor

Women's studies isn't merely equated with feminism – it is often equated queer studies, body studies, and increasingly gender and men's studies. Traditionally, women's studies has appealed to women and queer students predominately, but what is the situation of men and masculinities within the field of women's studies? This special issue of Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal seeks to explore the nuanced changes of the field as men and masculinities attain greater presence and status. While the experiences of men students, teachers, and academics within women's studies offer significant insight to the issues of masculinities in the field, this issue will not be limited to only these experiences and research.
