Masculinities (3) Courses devoted to the study of gender often focus primarily on the negative effects of the sex-gender system on the lives of women. This course critically examines the social construction of masculinities while interrogating dominant hetero-normative narratives of masculinity. By exploring masculinities around multiple axes of identity, including gender, sexualities, race, disabilities, ethnicities, and sexual orientation, students learn how masculinities function in a complex and diverse way within cultures and human social interactions.
