Professor Ulf Mellström (professor of Gender Studies at Karlstad University, Sweden) is presenting a Masterclass on Masculinity studies. This is the first event for the Alliance of Gender Scholars across the University, and all academics, PhD and postdoctoral scholars with an interest in gender studies are very welcome to attend.
Professor Mellström will present one version of the state of the art in masculinity studies, and some of the epistemological and emancipatory challenges. Drawing on a recent overview of Masculinity studies in Scandinavia and beyond (Mellström, Hearn, and Pringle 2014) as well as current empirical work on masculinity and risk, Professor Mellström will open discussion of the epistemological premises of masculinity studies in relation to feminist theory and the need for a feminist imagination.
Further detail about the event is on the attached flyer. RSVPs are required.
When: Friday April 17th, 10am-12pm
Where: Wills Building (off Wills court), 553 Seminar Room
