PATRIARCHY AND HIGHER EDUCATION: ORGANIZING AROUND MASCULINITIES AND MISOGYNY ON CANADIAN CAMPUSES

  • HANS ROLLMANN York University

Abstract

The spread of “men’s rights” organizations on Canadian university campusesraises several important questions. What can be learnt about the relationshipbetween men’s rights organizations, institutions of higher education, and thebroader conceptualization of feminisms, masculinities, and patriarchies? Iargue that just as the academy has provided a space for the emergence ofbroader and innovative understandings of masculinities, so too has it provideda uniquely fertile terrain for the emergence of reactionary and patriarchal responsesto those innovations, which appropriate the conceptual frameworksand language of feminism and intersectionality. An initial consideration of thisprocess situates the academy as an important and formative space in the shapingof those conceptual frameworks which underpin broader social strugglesover gendered roles and practices.
