GCS-4 Historical approaches to gender: Manliness and Masculinity in Europe and USA, 19th century till the first half of 20th century

COURSE INFORMATION

Learning outcomes: Students familiarize themselves with special knowledge about the cultural construction of masculinity in different societies, historical periods and social/cultural contexts. They learn that masculinity issues can be understood only relationally, i.e. either to other analytical categories like class, sexuality, age, ethnicity, race or between different groups of men as well as between men and women. They finally familiarize themselves with various historical sources and different historical approaches to the study of masculinity.

General Competences: 
Students are required to study various texts of contemporary bibliography relating to the history of masculinity, as well as to analyse material from different kinds of sources, research methods and theoretical settings. The seminar requires both teamwork and individual initiative and efforts for all participant students who come to understand masculinity as a historical phenomenon. The lesson encourages interdisciplinary thinking and uses influences in theory and methodology from different disciplines (history, social anthropology, geography). Students develop knowledge and sensibilities about nowadays unequal and hierarchical social relations through the historical approach to gender.
