Description

Panel 1: Professor Terrell Carver (Political Theory, Bristol); Dr Patricia Neville (Oral and Dental Sciences, Bristol); Dr Finn Mackay (Sociology, UWE) Panel 2: Dr Andrew Blades (English, Bristol); Mr Shuranjeet Takhar (Politics and International Relations, Bristol); Dr Margery Masterson (History, Bristol) In Fall 2017, Stony Brook University in the USA will open an MA in Masculinity Studies, one of the first of its kind in the world, and another step in the codification of the field. However, few UK universities have individual modules dedicated to the critical study of masculinity, let alone an entire programme. Where, then, does masculinity figure in the university curriculum, explicitly and implicitly? How do different disciplines frame issues of masculinity for students? When is the classroom a space for reimagining masculinity, and when is it a site of recalcitrance and resistance? How can we, as educators, challenge our students, and how might our students challenge us? This IAS-funded workshop will include two panels featuring a range of speakers, all the way from Bristol undergraduates to the professoriate; they will share their own experiences and practices as well as ideas on how to transform the curriculum.
