masculinities-a journal of identity and culture

Masculinities is a biannual journal of interdisciplinary and critical studies of gender and masculinity. It aims to enable researchers and academicians to discuss issues in an independent and inspiring forum related to the representations of gender, particularly masculinity, formations of gendered identities, cultural, social, and aesthetic reflections of masculinity in culture and literature. Masculinities primarily offers interdisciplinary and pioneering research in the field of gender and masculinity, necessarily outreaching into arts, literature, history, sociology, philosophy, communications, linguistics, and medicine. The journal publishes double blind peer-reviewed original articles, film and book reviews, reviews of the published articles exploring the changing roles and definitions of masculinity.

It’s been almost 20 years now since R.W. Connell published her groundbreaking and inspiring work, Masculinities, and masculinity studies has become a major field of study, a conceptual domain ready to come out of the closet, and a central critical point of reference in gender, identity, power and trans-anything discussions. The debate over the public visibility and hierarchy of gendered identities has manifested itself as a complicated conflict area more strongly than ever. It has often been reassured that it is of utmost importance to define and redefine the scope of masculinity studies, to establish its basic methodology, and maintain a balance between the ambiguity of interdisciplinary studies and objectivity of a scientific field.
