Beyond 'Working with Men and Boys'
(Re)defining, challenging, and transforming masculinities in sexuality and health programmes and policy.

The call for papers is now closed

Abstract notification:

  • You will be notified if your abstract has been accepted by 18 May 2014
  • You will then be invited to submit a complete draft of your paper for discussion and further development at a two-day ‘special issue workshop’ to be held at the University of Melbourne in July 2014 around the time of the International AIDS 2014 Conference (attendance at this workshop is not necessary for submission of a paper). 

Journal:

  • Final papers will be due by 1 October 2014 in order to work towards publication of the special issue of Culture, Health and Sexuality in mid-2015
  • The special issue will be called: Beyond ‘working with men and boys’: (re)defining, challenging, and transforming masculinities in sexuality and health programmes and policy
  • The special issue will be open access and edited by Andrew Gibbs, Cathy Vaughan and Peter Aggleton.

About:

In the 20 years since the 1994 Cairo International Conference on Population and Development, those working in the fields of health and sexuality have increasingly seen (changing) ‘men and masculinities’ as central to struggles for greater gender justice.  Efforts to respond to men’s violence and HIV, in particular, have focused on engaging men and boys, and on increasing understanding of the links between men, masculinities and a range of health behaviours.  Other work has explored how broad processes of social change have reworked masculinities and the implications of this for both health and sexuality. 

Perhaps as a consequence of these efforts, the phrase ‘We need to work with men and boys’ has become something of a mantra dominating health and sexuality programmes.  Yet surprisingly little research has explored what this might actually mean, the processes involved and, particularly, the challenges, problems, limitations and politics of this kind of work. Nor has there been much consideration of the ways in which women are and could be involved in this work, so as to support and not hinder efforts at changing masculinities.

In response to this HEARD researcher Andrew Gibbs, together with researchers Cathy Vaughan (University of Melbourne) and Peter Aggleton (University of New South Wales) issued a call for papers for a special issue of the journal Culture, Health and Sexuality, to critically explore engagement with men and boys and how this can be done in more progressive, equitable and health enhancing ways.
