The editors invite contributions that explore and advance developments in theories and practices of teaching that focus on democratic, non-hegemonic masculinities and their everyday practices. We ask how processes of unmasking masculinities and teaching democratic ways of becoming a boy/man can be investigated as individual and societal challenges. Furthermore, the planned volume focusses on burdens and delights of being a "beta" man: in gender research and theory, in masculinity studies and empirical explorations on teaching masculinities. The AtGender Teaching with Gender book "Future Perspectives on Masculinities:
Taking an intersectional approach, the book brings together perspectives that highlight positive public role models of masculinities and seeks to extend its scope including queer theory. The overall question that shall be addressed is: how can we teach these topics in different contexts.
This volume focusses on a wide range of different issues, which could include, but are not limited to:
* Basics - introducing state of the art; key texts; key issues; overviews;
* In depth topics - reflecting changing gender orders and gender regimes; parenting, public-private relations; gendered division of labor; hegemonic masculinities, male domination, transnational masculinities; transgender; masculinities and religions; decentering masculinities; heroes and wimps;
* Field work - exploring men and masculinities issues; approaches, procedures, methods in the classroom;
* Dealing with differences - feeling powerful and/or helpless; discussing masculinities in "male" or
"female" dominated groups; loving, hating, admiring, envying;
* Everyday practices / Activism - doing change; pro-feminist antiviolence movements; confronting anti-feminist populism; teaching democratic ways of being a man; interventions to stop sexism.
