Unsustainable Institutions of Men : Transnational Dispersed Centres, Gender Power, Contradictions, Hardback Book

Unsustainable Institutions of Men : Transnational Dispersed Centres, Gender Power, Contradictions Hardback

Edited by Jeff Hearn, Ernesto (University College Dublin, Ireland) Vasquez del Aguila, Marina Hughson

Part of the Routledge Advances in Feminist Studies and Intersectionality series

Description

How are men, masculinities and gender power implicated within global institutions?

How are global institutions to be understood in terms of men, masculinities and gender power?

What are men up to in such arenas as: global finance, corporate law, military intelligence, world sporting bodies and nationalist politics?

Unsustainable Institutions of Men examines men's dealings in transnational processes across the economy, politics, technologies and bodies.

In exploring the men's domination of institutions in national and transnational realms this volume underpins a novel approach built around multiple "dispersed centres" of men's power.

Indeed, in critical discussions of men and masculinities there has been a gradual shift in focus from the local, so-called 'ethnographic moment', to a broader view encompassing several dynamics (e.g. global, transnational, international, postcolonial and the global north-south).

Building on this conceptual move, Unsustainable Institutions of Men focuses on pinpointing masculine actions and influences that support and enact transnational processes, disclosing those connections and examining institutional alternatives which could contribute to more inclusive and democratic transnational dialogues. Comprised of a range of international contributions, Unsustainable Institutions of Men will appeal to students, researchers, experts and activists seeking to understand the deep structural conditions of contemporary globalized threats, created by old and new patterns of gender power and transnational patriarchies.
