Religions and Masculinities en Las Américas

Date: 29.09.2011 and 30.09.2011

Place: Torhaus der Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek, Raum S01, Krummer Timpen 3-5, Münster (Germany)

Description :To focus on masculinities inevitably requires taking the relationality of the category gender seriously and conducting an intersectional power analysis wherein religion again is conceptualized as a tremendously important socio-political factor among others. We would like to explore on the one hand the meaning of religion in the construction of masculinities and the impact of masculinity concepts on religion and religious institutions on the other. Considering migration, exchange, and transfer among cultures, ideas, and institutions in twentieth-century Americas – a geographical space, which is both marked by violent imbalances of power as by subtle forms of hegemony – will achieve analytical acuity, if it is guided by questions on the nexus of gender and religion. At the conference, we would like to discuss different approaches, hoping to develop further conceptual ideas.
