2nd International Symposium on Men and Masculinities: Challenges and Possibilities in Troubling Times CFP

12-14 September 2019, Istanbul, Turkey. 

Initiative for Critical Studies of Masculinities (ICSM) cordially invites proposals for the 2nd International Symposium on Men and Masculinities. The symposium aims to discuss how the current troubling sociopolitical context of populist authoritarianism, illiberalism, and precarity affect as well as transform experiences, discussions, theories, discourses and activism related to men and masculinities. Convenors invite researchers to discuss how masculinities have been (re)constructed in the broader context of authoritarianism and neoliberalism as well as how men have been shaping such processes. The conference aims to put under scrutiny the ways in which the current sociopolitical context affects the production of knowledge and theoretical discussions related to masculinities. 

Abstracts due 10 May 2019.
