Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"This workshop will address issues of masculinity and men’s experiences in contexts of heterosexuality, migration, and transnationalism. Studies that theorize gender in transnational contexts have overwhelmingly focused on women’s experiences. These include the feminization of migration, foreign domestic workers, marriage migration, and transnational sex work among others. Men and masculinity often figure peripherally in such studies. Although attention to masculinity has increased substantially over the past decade, the marginalization of men in gender theory and related scholarship remains prevalent. Our objective is to place masculinity, and especially heterosexual masculinities, at the center of analysis. [...]
Our workshop aims to build explicitly on the existing and emergent literature on masculinity, while at the same time going beyond existing contributions. The workshop will examine following questions :
How masculinities are constructed under particular conditions, including particular contexts of migration and regimes of neoliberal commodification and value ?
How do heterosexual men live their lives in relation to women and other men ?
How are men’s experiences embedded or disembedded vis-a-vis traditional or newly emergent assemblages of gender, power, economics and cultural ideals.
How do states or other institutions shape masculine ideals and practices ?"
