Masculinities, roles and transitions symposium

Date: Tuesday 10 May 2016, 9:30 – 17:00
Location: University of Leeds

The Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness (FSHI) have funded a one-day symposium that will explore diversity and well-being in the unfolding of men’s lives. The symposium is a collaboration between the University of Leeds, Edinburgh Napier University, University of Warwick and Glasgow Caledonian University.

One of the key aims of this event is to explore critical sociological questions that examine the relationships between masculinities, men’s health and well-being, and key spatial and temporal transitions across the life course.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Margunn Bjornholt (Modern Men: A 30-year Longitudinal Study),
  • Robert MacDonald (Young men, transitions and precariousness),
  • Peter Hopkins (Revisiting Young Muslim Masculinities),
  • Alan White (Keeping well as an older man),
  • Alan Dolan (Men’s experiences of infertility and childbirth) and
  • Carol Emslie (Straight men drink beer and gay men drink cocktails).
