CFP: Men, Masculinities, and Violence

Journal: Graduate Journal of Social Science
Guest Editor: Alankaar Sharma and Arpita Das
Submission deadline: September 10, 2015
Description: »In this special issue, we want to further investigate the complex relationship between men, masculinities, and violence. According to some recent research studies, adherence to hegemonic gender norms amongst contemporary men from certain contexts and communities is no longer as rigid as it used to be. What is the nature and context of these changes, and what do they mean in the context of violence as a tool of perpetuating patriarchy? What factors and forces resist or promote contemporary men’s and masculine practices of violence? Whilst men’s violence against women has deservedly received significant attention, men’s violence against other men has somewhat escaped scrutiny; how do we understand this through the lens of gender?«
