  • Looking at Men: An Approach to the Perception that Male and Female
           University Students of Primary and Nursery Education Have about Men

    • Authors: Alejandro Martinez González, Andra Rodríguez Fernández-Cuevas, Lars Bonell García
      Abstract: The latest studies and researches highlight the important role that teachers play in school in addressing and contributing to reach gender equality. Their own perceptions about masculinity and femininity are critical. This article presents the results from a research that was carried out with university students of Primary and Nursery Education of the Educational Center La Salle University-UAM. The students had been choosen specifically because of their future role as references in the children’s socialization as well as for the construction of their gender identity. The article presents three important issues: the maintenance of certain hegemonic notions about masculinity, the positive and negative evaluations of these concepts by men and women, and ways and possibilities to overcome hegemonic masculine positions that cause most rejection

  • Re-Thinking Aspiration and Hegemonic Masculinity in Transnational Context

    • Authors: Richard Howson
      Abstract: This article offers a contribution to the on-going critical analysis of the concept hegemonic masculinity. However, not in a way that seeks the demise or supersession of the concept but rather to offer a theoretical development that brings into focus certain important and specific claims: (1) that masculinity is something men do yet, (2) hegemonic masculinity requires all men to position themselves in relation to it. In trying to build some connection between these two claims as well as, thinking through some of the key issues that have challenged hegemonic masculinity over the last two to three decades this article re-introduces and develops the concept of aspiration as one important way to articulate the contemporary importance of hegemonic masculinity in the field of masculinity theory. Further it offers a brief application of aspiration and hegemonic masculinity in the field of the transnational.

  • Disabled Masculinities: A Review and Suggestions for Further Research

    • Authors: Timothy Barrett
      Abstract: This article provides an overview of the existing sociological literature relating to disabled masculinities, a field of enquiry that has undergone substantial development over the past two decades. I contend that previous studies have insightfully uncovered the social forces that have established a “dilemma of disabled masculinity” within contemporary Western societies, as well as the complex, contextualised and multiple ways in which disabled men negotiate this dilemma. To foster the further development of the field, I suggest three potentially productive lines for future enquiry. Specifically, I support greater attention to the issue of comparative diversity between impairment categories, a consideration of the generative role that disability may have in relation to masculinity, and more sustained enquiry into how changing constructions of masculinity inflect the lives of disabled men.

  • Framing the involvement of men in gender equality in Europe: Between
           institutionalised and non-institutionalised politics

    • Authors: Nadja Bergmann, Elli Scambor, Katarzyna Wojnicka
      Abstract: In order to reach the main goal of the paper, the identification of the impact and effectiveness of strategies and measures which promote gender equality not only in connection to women but also men, an overview of institutionalised practices, men’s involvement in gender equality strategies like gender mainstreaming, as well as men’s participation in international and national networks, organisations and groups are presented. The identification of specific forms of institutionalised and non-institutionalised practices and politics is based on the theoretical model proposed by Michael Messner (2000) and concerns the situation in the European Union.
