Call for Papers

Following on from the success of our network launch at BCU in May 2019 themed around
masculinity and body image our next network event in Berlin in January 2020 takes the
topic of Masculinity and National Identity as a starting point for conversation around some
of the following themes:

• National/regional masculinities
• The sexualisation of regional/ethnic masculinity
• Masculinity and national identities and intersections of sexuality, racial, religious,
ethnic, class, etc. identities
• Intra/international constructions and articulations of masculinity and national
identity
• Politics & ideology (incl. far-left and far-right articulations), including but not limited
to: extremism, populism, activism, nationalism, separatism, neoliberalism
• On/offline representation(s) and performance(s) of masculinity and national identity
• Media discourses of masculinity and national identity
• Men’s (online) groups and forums

We invite individual papers, pre-constituted panels, poster presentations, video
presentations, or short performance pieces that address the theme of the symposium. We
intend to convene several roundtable discussions so we particularly welcome 5 to 10 min
position papers on topics related to masculinity and national identity in the 21st century
from any field of study.
These are topics that relate popular debate and media reportage, educators and policy
makers and we are keen to involve practitioners and non-academics in our discussions and
events.

MASCNET is a 24-month AHRC funded research network explores the pervasiveness of
sexualized masculine embodiment across contemporary popular culture, and sets an
ambitious agenda for subsequent research. The network steering group includes Begonya
Enguix, Joao Florencio, Jamie Hakim, Mark McGlashan, Peter Rehberg and Florian Voros.
