Agrarian masculinities: Tradition and Change

Content of the event


While we can see evidence of masculinities shifting and changing in urban spaces, what about masculinities in rural areas? Are they just as dynamic? And if so, how are they framed differently when they intersect with class, race, ethnicity, age, sexuality, and disability? This seminar takes up these questions, drawing on research that has explored meanings of rural masculinities in spaces and practices ranging from organic farming, alcohol consumption, and romance to hunting, parenting, and nationalism. It will challenge you to rethink your own ideas and experiences of rural masculinities and to consider the ways in which the politics of representation of rural masculinities affect our everyday lives.
