The Power of Masculinities

Editors:
Phyllis Baker, Associate Dean College of Arts and Sciences
University of Northern Iowa
Harry Brod, Professor of Arts and Humanities
University of Northern Iowa

Theme: Empirical or theoretical contributions on any aspect of masculinities.

Topics:

* How Pluralized Concept "msaculinities" empowered researchers and activists to explore the diversities of masculinities?

* What do the inherent complexities in the constructions and presentations of masculinities tell us about the relationships among gender, power and masculinities?

* What are the connections between masculinities and power? For example, in what ways are masculinities also patriarchies?

* How does scholorship on masculinities empower people to change undesireable aspects of masculinities?

You may choose your own style sheet, (provided you remain consistent within your contribution); select a more or less personal and tone of writing (academic, letter, opinion peice, philosophical essay, etc) create a piece of art of music (with a short artist's statement defining how your contribution relates to the topic at hand); write a review of a relevant publication (boo, video, art, etc)
