American Men's Studies Association 9th annual conference, March 23-25, 2001 at Holiday Inn Mountain View, Albuquerque NM.
Interdisciplinary. Particularly interested in looking at the ways in which diverse cultural and spiritual traditions have influenced our understanding of masculinity.
Past presentations have ranged widely: social, cultural and historical constructions of masculinities; the relationship of men's studies and feminism, men in literature and history, gay masculinities, fathers and fathering, violence, religion. A similar array is expected at this conference.
Presentations invited from graduate/undergraduate students as well as researchers, professors, clergy and theapists. AMSA also encourages panels exploring a theme, a book, etc.
