About this product
- DescriptionThe Masculinity Studies Reader is a collection of previously published essays that have defined the interdisciplinary study of masculinity. Bringing together scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, this volume serves multiple functions as a teaching companion, introduction to the field, and scholarly resource. Showcasing key theorists, including Kimmel, Silverman, Halperin, Freud, Dyer, Boyarin, and Fan, the Reader seeks to reconceptualize the masculinity studies debate along the axes of empire, borders, representations, the social sciences, and eroticism, as well as across such diverse fields as film, anthropology, women's studies, sociology, and queer theory. An introductory essay written by the editors frames widely-read and -cited work in a new context that is intended simultaneously to establish the contours of, and to raise questions about, masculinity as a field of academic inquiry.
