CFP: Beyond Don Juan: Rethinking Iberian Masculinities

Conference: Beyond Don Juan: Rethinking Iberian Masculinities
Place: New York University, New York, United States
Date: March 31 - April 1, 2011
Submission deadline for proposals: March 1, 2010
Description: »This conference will thus focus on both tracing and revisiting these archetypes of masculinity from medieval Iberia to the present, by placing them in the context of the divergent counter-images that exist, and have always existed, below the radar. The conference will be especially concerned with the exploration of alternative models for being a man which examine or challenge the traditional links between machismo and Hispanic culture, and/or suggest more egalitarian models of manhood. Therefore, we welcome papers that investigate both the construction and de-construction of masculinity in Iberian cultures and literatures, from any genre and historical period, from different disciplines (literary studies, film studies, art, religion, visual culture, photography, etc.) and methodological perspectives (masculinity studies, feminist theory, queer studies, cultural studies, etc.). We are particularly interested in re-visions of Iberian masculinities, especially as they are manifested in Catalonia, the Basque country, and Galicia, in non-Christian cultures in the Iberian Peninsula, and in the Americas, including Latino cultures in the U.S. and Canada.«
