Border Masculinities

Date: 19 September 2014 Time: From 5.30 pm (Fri 19 Sept) and 9.00 am - 4.00 pm (Sat 20 Sept)

Venue: Bowland North Seminar Room 20

In a joint project between the Departments of European Languages and Cultures and English and Creative Writing, a two-day symposium will be held on Friday 19 September and Saturday 20 September. Please visit the website for further information on the programme for the event.

Border Masculinities will bring together scholars from a wide range of specialisms to discuss spatial and conceptual borders with regard to the representation of masculinities. Papers will be delivered that consider masculinities in Britain, as well as in North and Latin America, and how the condition of the border can open up analyses and discussions of forms of masculinity in literature, film and other cultural representations. Current debates about masculinities will be challenged with innovative analyses that re-consider the ways men and masculinities have been conceptualised across a number of different disciplines.
