CfP Men, Masculinities, and Reproduction

Dear colleagues,

We are looking for submissions for a special issue of NORMA on "Men,
Masculinities, and Reproduction" (see CfP below).

Please spread the word and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any
further questions.


NORMA - International Journal for Masculinity Studies

CfP: Men, Masculinities, and Reproduction

How can scholars conceptualize men, masculinities, and reproduction? How might
research on reproduction contribute to the theoretical and empirical
development of masculinity studies? What have trajectories for research on
men, masculinities, and reproduction looked like in the past and what might
they look like in the future? In this call for papers, on behalf of NORMA the
guest editors Rene Almeling, Assoc. Prof. of Sociology, Yale University and
Sebastian Mohr, Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies, Karlstad University, seek
submissions on the topic of "Men, Masculinities, and Reproduction." We will
interpret the theme broadly, and are thus open to submissions from a wide
variety of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, regions, and methodologies
(historical, qualitative, quantitative, demographic, etc.). In particular, we
encourage submissions that theorize the relationship between reproduction and
masculinities and/or examine the historical and social dimensions of cis and
trans* reproductive bodies, lives, and experiences. We understand the term
reproduction to include a broad range of biological, bodily/material, and
social processes, which might include (but are not limited to) such topics as
reproductive health and capacities, conception, pregnancy, birth,
contraception, abortion, infertility, and reproductive technologies (IVF,
surrogacy, gamete donation, etc).

Interested authors should send an abstract (250 words) and a short author-bio
(200 words) to and by the 30th of June, 2019.
Authors will receive notifications by the 7th of July. Full paper submissions
according to NORMA's guidelines (click here for more
information) will be due by the 6th of October, 2019 for the
journal's double-blind peer-review process. Review responses can be expected
at the beginning of December 2019. Depending on editorial decisions and
revisions, final papers will be due by the beginning of March 2020.

While most people address me with the pronouns he/him/his, I am thankful for
communication that goes beyond a gender binary.

I will do my best to meet accomodation needs in communication and personal
meetings, so please approach me directly in regard to accessibility.
