In recent years, there has been an explosion in scholarship that questions masculinity in history. This vibrant new approach has incorporated many different theoretical and empirical considerations in historical scholarship. This conference, held at Birkbeck College, University of London on 15th & 16th May 2008, fosters discussion across fields and time period specialism. We would welcome papers in contemporary and modern, early modern, medieval, Classical, Ancient and non-western history, from historians throughout the world who are working in the general field of masculinity studies. The conference will provide discussion of the latest thinking, debates and contention in this field, that it will serve as a review of ‘where we are now’ in terms of scholarship in the field of masculinity studies. The highest quality papers in this conference will be published in a single volume collection, by Palgrave Macmillan.
