FGSS 338, SISP 338|
Often an "unmarked category" in psychology, masculinity and the broader subject of the psychology of men is gaining interest. The course surveys psychologies of masculinity, from evolutionary perspectives to cognitive research, psychoanalysis, and queer theory. Consideration will be given to historical dynamics and cultural patterns of masculinity. We will ask how the psychological attributes associated with the masculine relate to private life and public spaces, notably commerce, science, and political affairs. To be considered are the claims of the masculine epistemic grounding of the science and the "natural" conditions of masculine human kinds.
