Political Masculinities - Network

This network welcomes researchers from all cultures and academic disciplines interested in the field of political masculinities.

We hope to continue the interdisciplinary discussions on political masculinities held at the conferences in Landau, Vienna and Cambridge in 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

On these websites we will publish information on research on political masculinities, publications, projects and requests for cooperation.
