PSYC 338
Winter 2017
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 338, SISP 338
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

Masculinity and the broader subject of the psychology of men often stand as unmarked categories in psychology and the human sciences generally. The course surveys psychologies of masculinity, including psychoanalysis, evolutionary notions, cognitive models, and queer theory. Consideration will be given to historical and cultural dynamics of masculinity. We ask how the psychological attributes associated with the masculine relate to private life and public spaces, notably commerce, science, and political affairs. We consider, too, the claims of the masculine epistemic grounding of the science and the "natural" status of masculine human kinds.
