Calls for Papers
Adolescent and Young Adult Male Health: Call for Papers/Submissions
We are soliciting manuscripts to be featured in a sponsored supplement to the Journal of Adolescent Health focused on Adolescent and Young Adult Male Health. The goal of this supplement is to highlight and promote rigorous research on current issues of broad interest to health professionals who are focused on clinical care, public health, health policy, and preventive interventions in adolescent and young adult males.
Topics of special interest may include but are not limited to:
The VI Coloquio Internacional sobre Hombres y Masculinidades [International Colloquium on Men and Masculinities] will take place in Recife, Brazil, in April 2017. The official languages are Portuguese and Spanish. Please share with your network. Visit www.masculinidades.org.
Call for Abstracts: Trans/Masculinities
What would happen if Masculinity Studies began to acknowledge liminal masculinities and the emergent field of Transgender Studies? How would this shift presumptions of what masculinity means and how it is conventionally addressed in this field of gender research? Masculinity Studies has so far almost without exception taken the cis male subject as its denominator.

Masculinities: a non/contested terrain?
David Knights, Lancaster University & Open University, ENGLAND
Since the 1970s discourses of managerialism and masculinity have been pre-eminent in organizations
“Gender,” in the environmental humanities and social sciences, has long been synonymous with “women.” Feminist and ecofeminist scholars have produced a great deal of work on the links between femininities and environments and on women’s involvement in environmental politics and practices. More recently, the emerging field of queer ecology has troubled the binary construction of gender that traditionally has informed (eco)feminist research. What remains under-addressed are the myriad ways in which masculinities and masculinized roles, identities, and practices shape human relationships with the more-than-human human world. Indeed, the few available scholarly articles that do interrogate masculinity and environment begin with the recognition (and a lament) that there is so little research available.
