CS&M Call for Papers: Men and Masculinities in Higher Education

Culture, Society & Masculinities Call for Manuscripts Fall, 2013 Special Issue:

Men and Masculinities in Higher Education

Discussions, debates, and/or analyses pertaining to men and masculinities in the Academy have taken many forms.  These have ranged from conceptual and theoretical interrogations of culture, ideology, symbols, rituals, and power; to practical consideration of issues affecting male students’ enrolment, engagement and graduation rates; issue-focused research about gender-based violence and other problems; inquiry about intersections with race, sexualities and other social identities; to questions of representation of faculty and staff within positions of authority, equity in committee representation, tenure, and/or compensation.

For this special issue of Culture, Society & Masculinities, we seek manuscripts that explore any of these issues, or others, within the context of post-secondary/tertiary education.  Manuscripts from any discipline, reporting on quantitative, qualitative or mixed-methods research; pedagogical or policy analyses; or conceptual-theoretical essays examining issues, lived experiences, symbolic representations or texts are all welcome for consideration.

Guest Editor for this special issue is Dr. Jason A. Laker (San José State University, California, USA), who welcomes inquiries about it.  If you are interested in submitting a paper for this CS&M special issue, please submit an abstract for the proposed paper no later than November 1, 2012 to jlaker.sjsu@gmail.com with “Abstract for CS&M Special Issue” in the subject line of your email.  Invitations for full-article submissions will be sent by December 15, 2012 with full manuscripts due April 1, 2013.  The abstract should be no more than 250 words, submitted with a title page containing each author’s name, institutional affiliation, and complete contact information.
