  • The Tricky ’True Object’: Bourdieu’s Masculine
           Domination and Historicity

    • Authors: Miklos Hadas
      Pages: 210 - 240
      Abstract: Pierre Bourdieu’s Masculine Domination was published in English in 2001, three years after the appearance of the French version. In order to deconstruct in vivo the working of sociological paradigm-alchemy, a close reading of the Bourdieusian argument is offered. After summing up the main thesis of the book, Bourdieu’s statements will be intended to be questioned, according to which the school, the family, the state and the church would reproduce, in the long run, masculine domination. The paper will also seek to identify the methodological trick of the Bourdieusian vision on history, namely that, metaphorically speaking, he compares the streaming river to the riverside cliffs. It will be argued that when Bourdieu discusses ‘the constancy of habitus’, the ‘permanence in and through change’, or the ‘strength of the structure’, he extends his paradigm about the displacement of the social structure to the displacement of the men/women relationship. Hence, it will be suggested that, in opposition to Bourdieu’s thesis, masculine domination is not of universal validity but its structural weight and character have fundamentally changed in the long run, i.e. the masculine habitual centre gradually shifted from a social practice governed by the drives of physical violence to symbolic violence.

  • Mobile Masculinities: An Investigation of Networked Masculinities in Gay
           Dating Apps

    • Authors: Nathian Shae Rodriguez, Jennifer Huemmer, Lindsey Erin Blumell
      Pages: 241 - 267
      Abstract: This study argues that hegemonic masculinity and inclusive masculinity are conciliatory when applied to networked masculinities in homosexual spaces. It contends hegemonic masculinity is a macro-level process that informs micro-level processes of inclusive masculinity. Employing a textual analysis of 500 individual profiles in gay dating apps (Scruff, GROWLr, GuySpy and Hornet), findings indicate networked masculinities informed by hegemonic masculinity. A process of “mascing” also resulted from the data.

  • The Five Stages of Masculinity: A New Model for Understanding

    • Authors: Joseph Gelfer
      Pages: 268 - 294
      Abstract: The article uses the so-called “crisis of masculinity” as a jumping-off point for proposing a new model for understanding masculinities called the Five Stages of Masculinity. The five stages outlined in the article are: Stage 1, Unconscious Masculinity; Stage 2, Conscious Masculinity; Stage 3, Critical Masculinities; Stage 4, Multiple Masculinities; Stage 5, Beyond Masculinities. A content analysis of news and magazine articles is provided to give some initial indication as to the proportion of public conversations taking place at each stage. The article concludes by discussing the implications of the Five Stages of Masculinity for the study of men and masculinities, as well as some new thoughts on the nature of the crisis of masculinity via a mobilization of Giorgio Agamben’s concept of the “state of exception.”

  • Paternity and Parental Leave in Latin America and the Caribbean. Essential

    • Authors: Carina Lupica
      Pages: 295 - 320
      Abstract: Institutional reform becomes necessary to accompany the entry of women into the labor market and promote greater involvement of men in caring for their children in most countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. So that both partners have a paid job and, in turn, exercise their shared parental responsibilities, it is required to extend to male workers care guarantees that are not exclusively linked to the biological reproductive role of women: pregnancy, childbirth and lactation. In that sense, paternity and parental leaves are useful tools to advance from the world of work towards overcoming the old model of "the male breadwinner and female housewife." However, these important changes alone are not enough. The implementation of positive actions is essential to stimulate the cultural change needed in order to foster a new perception of workers regarding family commitments.
