French and Francophone Masculinities in Culture and Theory
Todd W. Reeser and Lewis C. Seifert
Despite its debt to French thought for theoretical constructs, masculinity studies have been dominated by work on English-language texts and contexts.
lays the foundation for French and Francophone masculinity studies in both a cultural and theoretical sense. This ground-breaking volume considers what is meant by 'French' or 'Francophone' masculinities per se and how these identities have or have not changed over time, with essays spanning periods from the Middle Ages to the present. An introduction situates the study of masculinity within the work of recent French thinkers, and essays examine both key writers and recurring cultural images.
