Further Details
Abstract Raises questions & themes relevant for introduction of men's studies or critical studies on men & masculinities in the Czech Republic. The general issue of gender studies, & the situation & context of men in the Czech Republic, are focal. The former deals with the theoretical basis for research on men, while the latter explores empirical data on men that may be used in further research. The author's empirical inquiry into the life histories of men in the Czech Republic is described, highlighting different men (nonmanipulative, lacking the need to control others, emotional) to challenge the existence of a single normative (hegemonic) masculinity. In accordance with contemporary sources from Anglo Saxon social science literature, the existence of a plurality & colorful forms of masculine identity is suggested, & implications for gender studies in the Czech Republic are discussed.
