Men, Masculinities and Violence

The BSC Critical Criminology Network’s Book of the Year 2016 Why do some men use physical violence against others? How do some men come to value physical violence as a resource? Drawing on in-depth ethnographic research conducted with men involved in serious violence and crime over a period of two years in the North of England, Anthony Ellis addresses these questions and the complex relationship between these men and their use of physical violence against others. Using detailed life-history interviews and extended periods of observation with these men, Men, Masculinities and Violence describes their ‘inner’ subjective lives and experiences, exploring how they came to value violence, why they are willing to use it against others and risk serious harm to themselves in the process. Over the course of the book a picture emerges of a group of men that have experienced and perpetrated serious violence throughout their lives. This book advances a critical psychosocial understanding of such violence by situating these masculine biographies within their immediate contexts of de-industrialisation, fracturing working class community and culture, and broader shifts within the political economy of liberal capitalism. With its synthesis of rich ethnographic material and new developments in criminological theory, this book is essential reading for students and academics interested in issues of gender and violence.

Feminisms in Social Work Research

Promise and possibilities for justice-based knowledge

Author: Stéphanie Wahab,Ben Anderson-Nathe,Christina Gringeri

Social work as a profession and academic discipline has long centered women and issues of concern to women, such as reproductive rights, labor rights, equal rights, violence and poverty. In fact, the social work profession was started by and maintained in large part by women and has been home to several generations of feminists starting with recognized first wave feminists. This wide-ranging volume both maps the contemporary landscape of feminist social work research, and offers a deep engagement with critical and third wave feminisms in social work research. Showcasing the breadth and depth of exemplary social work feminist research, the editors argue that social work’s unique focus on praxis, daily proximities to privilege and oppression, concern with social change and engagement with participatory forms of inquiry place social workers in a unique position to both learn from and contribute to broader social science and humanities discourse associated with feminist research. The authors attend here to their specific claims of feminisms, articulate deep engagement with theory, address the problematic use of binaries, and engage with issues associated with methods that are consistently of interest to feminist researchers, such as power and authority, ethics, reflexivity, praxis and difference. Comprehensive and containing an international selection of contributions, Feminisms in Social Work Research is an important reference for all social work researchers with an interest in critical perspectives.

Männer und Männlichkeiten

Disziplinäre Perspektiven

Publisher: vdf Hochschulverlag AG

ISBN: 3728135402

Category: Masculinity

Page: 224

View: 1734

Der Mann bzw. "das Männliche" wurde im wissenschaftlichen Diskurs lange Zeit mit dem "Allgemein-Menschlichen" gleichgesetzt. Dies verhinderte in vielen Disziplinen eine explizite Auseinandersetzung mit der Bedeutung von Geschlecht sowie mit unhinterfragten Annahmen über das "spezifisch Männliche" an sich. Anknüpfend an die aktuelle Männerforschung stellt dieses Buch Männerbilder und Männlichkeitskonstruktionen in sozial-, geistes-, technik- und naturwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen ins Zentrum. Am Beispiel von Fächern wie der Biologie, der Pädagogik, der Jurisprudenz, der Informatik und vielen anderen wird normativen Vorstellungen von Männlichkeit in ihrer Bedeutung für wissenschaftliche Fragenstellungen, für die Theoriebildung und empirische Forschung nachgegangen. Kritisch reflektiert werden überdies die Konsequenzen hegemonialer Männlichkeitskonstruktionen für Wissensentwicklungen in den Disziplinen sowie für gesellschaftliche Transformationen. Die Beiträge eröffnen dabei nicht nur einen Blick auf die Vielfalt und die Grenzen von Männlichkeitsentwürfen, sondern auch auf potenziell innovative Konzeptionen des Mannes in der Wissenschaft.

The making of men

masculinities, sexualities and schooling

Author: Máirtín Mac an Ghaill

Publisher: Open Univ Pr

ISBN: N.A

Category: Art

Page: 209

View: 4195

Mairtin Mac an Ghaill explores how boys learn to be men in schools while policing their own and others' sexuality. The text focuses on the students' confusions and contradictions in their gendered experiences; and upon how schools actively produce, through the official and hidden curriculum, a range of masculinities which young men come to inhabit. The author attempts to do full justice to the complex phenomenon of male heterosexual subjectivities and to the role of schooling in forming sexual identities.

Male Rape, Masculinities, and Sexualities

Understanding, Policing, and Overcoming Male Sexual Victimisation

Author: Aliraza Javaid

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319526391

Category: Social Science

Page: 298

View: 9868

This book critically explores the intersections between male rape, masculinities, and sexualities. It examines the ways in which male rape is policed, responded to, and addressed by state and voluntary agencies in Britain. The book uncovers how notions of gender, sexualities and masculinities shape these agencies’ understanding of male rape and their views of men as victims of rape. Javaid pays particular attention to the police and deconstructs police subculture to consider whether it influences and shapes the ways in which police officers provide services for male rape victims. Grounded in qualitative interviews and data derived from the state and voluntary sector, this book will be invaluable reading for sociologists, criminologists, and social scientists who are keen to learn more about gender, policing, sexual violence and male sexual victimisation.

Straights

Heterosexuality in Post-Closeted Culture

Author: James Joseph Dean

Publisher: NYU Press

ISBN: 0814789412

Category: Social Science

View: 2054

Since the Stonewall Riots in 1969, the politics of sexual identity in America have drastically transformed. It’s almost old news that recent generations of Americans have grown up in a culture more accepting of out lesbians and gay men, seen the proliferation of LGBTQ media representation, and witnessed the attainment of a range of legal rights for same-sex couples. But the changes wrought by a so-called “post-closeted culture” have not just affected the queer community—heterosexuals are also in the midst of a sea change in how their sexuality plays out in everyday life. In Straights, James Joseph Dean argues that heterosexuals can neither assume the invisibility of gays and lesbians, nor count on the assumption that their own heterosexuality will go unchallenged. The presumption that we are all heterosexual, or that there is such a thing as ‘compulsory heterosexuality,’ he claims, has vanished. Based on 60 in-depth interviews with a diverse group of straight men and women, Straights explores how straight Americans make sense of their sexual and gendered selves in this new landscape, particularly with an understanding of how race does and does not play a role in these conceptions. Dean provides a historical understanding of heterosexuality and how it was first established, then moves on to examine the changing nature of masculinity and femininity and, most importantly, the emergence of a new kind of heterosexuality—notably, for men, the metrosexual, and for women, the emergence of a more fluid sexuality. The book also documents the way heterosexuals interact and form relationships with their LGBTQ family members, friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. Although homophobia persists among straight individuals, Dean shows that being gay-friendly or against homophobic expressions is also increasingly common among straight Americans. A fascinating study, Straights provides an in-depth look at the changing nature of sexual expression in America.

Military Masculinities

Identity and the State

Author: Paul Higate

Publisher: Praeger Publishers

ISBN: 9780275975586

Category: History

Page: 233

View: 6662

In spite of all the attention that has been devoted to men's identity in recent years, the links between men and the military have until now remained unquestioned, and thus unexplored. This groundbreaking volume deconstructs the traditional stereotypes of military identity and makes a strong case for a plurality of identities within a range of theoretical and empirical contexts. The contributors consider the ways in which military masculine identities are created and sustained in the armed forces and the societies in which they operate. Though mainly focused on the British army, this volume explores universal issues such as violence among military communities, the identity of women in the military, and the treatment of conscientious objectors.
