This collection overturns old paradigms about identity, victimization, and dominant and alternative forms of masculinity to advance new dialogues between masculinity studies and feminist theory.

How are male power and privilege constituted and represented? What are the effects of men's masculinity on women and men? How can more egalitarian forms of masculinity be fostered? Looking particularly at literature, film, and classroom practices, Masculinity Studies and Feminist Theory links the analysis of masculinities with feminism's ethical and political agenda for the future.
