Do you want a guy you admire featured in the "Men in the Movement" social media series by International Planned Parenthood Federation/ Western Hemisphere Region?
With Father's Day coming up, we want to amplify your stories about men whose support, guidance, and commitment to social change is helping to build a better world.
Send a 500-800 word story to email@example.com by June 1st that explains who he is and what he's done that's so special. (Include a photo if you can!) The stories we receive will be posted throughout June to our blog, Facebook, and Pinterest.
Participants are needed for research currently being undertaken into stag/ bachelor/ buck's party sex tourism. The research is seeking to explore the apparent relationship between the stag/bachelor/buck’s party and the paying for sex.
Any and all interview participants will be anonymous. Interviews will take place by telephone at a time that is convenient for you and only last about 20 – 30 minutes. Questions will explore your experiences, decision making and feelings about paying for sexual services on a stag party abroad and also about paying for sex in general.
I am issuing a call for papers for an edited collection called Masculinities in a Global Era to be published in Springer’s International and Cultural Psychology book series: http://www.springer.com/series/6089
Thinking about masculinity, maleness and men has always had a place in the interdisciplinary fields of feminist, queer and gender studies. Discussion and debate about the relevance of masculinity as a shifting concept has recently been further developed in the fields of politics and International Relations (IR) where scholars have explicitly tried to address women’s experiences in relation to the persistence of the ‘man question’.
Despite this, masculinity in international politics remains somewhat amorphous. Research has tended to be disconnected, addressing particular wars or media events, rather than masculinity as an organising concept or its role across space and time in its historically variable forms.
The next Nordic conference on research on men and masculinities takes place May 31st – June 1st 2012, at the University of Oslo. The deadline for first call for paper and suggestions for workshop themes is May 15, 2011.
New times, new solutions? What does it mean being a boy or a man today? How can women and men be understood being masculine? How is "masculine space" developing in a gender equal society?
