The organisers of the 2014 Border Masculinities symposium, Dr Amit Thakkar and Dr Brian Baker (Lancaster), along with keynote speaker Prof Chris Harris (Liverpool), published a call for papers earlier this year with the intention of producing a world-leading collection of articles intended to foster dialogues between a range of disciplines engaged in the analysis of cultural representations of gender.
Proposals were sent in and the editors took some time scrutinising the very high-quality submissions, before making decisions about who to invite to contribute the the volume. We are now in the process of drawing up a definitive list of contributors.
The Border Masculinities project has been, from the start, an inter-disciplinary project and its focus is trans-cultural. The contributors to the volume will be drawn from and international group of scholars who are pursuing exciting new research into formations of masculinity. We will publish further news and updates about the book project and any further events over the coming months.
