Doing Masculinities Studies as a Feminist Woman: Aims and Gains.

Prof. Sara Martín

After decades publishing on men and masculinities, I consider in this talk the origins of the field, my own contribution and that of the research groups I have worked with, and the future of the area. It might seem that men have already been the object of attention for too long, for feminist scholars to engage in the study of their representation in fiction (which is what I do). Yet it helps feminism, and indeed men, to have a better awareness of the mechanisms by which patriarchy stays in power in order to dismantle it and produce a free, detoxified masculinity.
