Global Masculinities

The dramatic success of Gender Studies has rested on three developments: (1) making women’s lives visible, which has also come to mean making all genders more visible; (2) insisting on intersectionality and so complicating the category of gender; (3) analyzing the tensions among global and local iterations of gender. Through textual analyses and humanities-based studies of cultural representations, as well as cultural studies of attitudes and behaviors, we have come to see the centrality of gender in the structure of modern life. This series embraces these advances in scholarship, and applies them to men’s lives: gendering men’s lives, exploring the rich diversity of men’s lives—globally and locally, textually and practically—as well as the differences among men by class, race, sexuality, and age. 

Michael Kimmel is a professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He is the author or editor of more than twenty books, including: Men's Lives, Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men, The Gendered Society, The Politics of Manhood, and Manhood in America: A Cultural History. He edits Men and Masculinities, an interdisciplinary scholarly journal, and edited the Encyclopedia of Men and Masculinities and the Handbook of Studies on Men and Masculinities. He consults with corporations, NGOs, and public sector organizations all over the world on gender equity issues, including work-family balance, reducing workplace discrimination, and promoting diversity. 

Judith Kegan Gardiner is the Interim Director of the Department of Slavic and Baltic Languages and Literatures and a professor of English and of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
