There is more than one way to be a man. This course will introduce students to theoretical approaches to understanding masculinities. We will look at how biological, political, economic and psychological factors influence how masculinities are constructed. Students will increasingly reflect a sense of themselves as gendered beings and they will develop an appreciation of how social constructions of masculinities influence how they define themselves.
