Moving Masculinities: Crossing Regional and Historical Borders. The Australian National University
November 30-December 2 2005
This conference aims to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue on masculinities across regional borders and historical epochs, attempting to describe, understand and explain their diverse and changing forms, with particular reference to Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific.
Some questions to be explored include:
How have masculinities changed and what forces have shaped historical transformations?
Are current theories of masculinity unduly influenced by European and American models of masculinity?
What are the contours of indigenous and settler masculinities in colonial and contemporary situations?
How have hegemonic masculinities been challenged by alternative or queer masculinities and new configurations of sexuality?
To what extent have localised masculinities been globalised through war, sport, and electronic media?
If you are interested in giving a paper, please submit a title with an abstract of c. 300 words to the e-mail address provided below, or Jodi.Parvey@anu.edu.au by April 30, 2005. We aim to review abstracts and confirm participation by June 30, 2005. A conference web-site will be posted during April 2005 with further information including registration details and costs.
