The study of masculinity has been gaining momentum in the last two

decades. However, much of this research has been framed by

concerns about sexuality, gender and identity. This conference seeks

to radically depart from this focus. Instead, it will analyse the rise to

prominence of diverse forms of ‘extreme masculinities’ – right-wing,

violent, criminal, gang, terrorist, hyper-muscular, prison, football

hooligan etc. – within and through the context of contemporary

politics, neoliberal restructuring of the economy and the ideology of

consumerism. The conference aims to foster thinking about the rise

of ‘extreme masculinities’ from the perspective of social, economic

and structural analysis and thus offer an alternative perspective to

the increasing proliferation of theories that individualise and

psychologise questions of gender.
