Teaching Modules: Men & Masculinities

Are you prepping to teach a new class or a Spring course? Do you want to incorporate a section about men & masculinities, but aren’t sure what you want to integrate for readings and activities?

This week Gender & Society is highlighting a teaching module about men and masculinities from our new Pedagogy Project. This module was co-authored by three members of the G&S Junior Scholar Advisory Board – Melissa Kinsella, Jihmmy Sanchez, and Yuchen Yang.

This lesson plan introduces a variety of ways to teach concepts introduced by Tristan Bridges, Raewyn Connell, and James Messerschmidt.

When these teaching materials are incorporated into the classroom, students will gain a deeper understanding of concepts such as hegemonic masculinity, hybrid masculinity and sexual aesthetics. This module includes articles published in Gender & Society as well additional readings, digital media, and activities for students in the classroom.
