Masculinities: Perspectives from the South

Dr. Ajay Bailey from the Population Research Centre at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen, will visit NIAS and ADI to take part in a roundtable discussion.

The discussion will focus on the construction of masculinities in varied spatialities and localities in the global south. The contested notions of 'angry young men' in Africa or the emasculated figure of a male migrant are some of the images that frame our imaginations of masculinity. The roundtable seeks to gather experiences from different locations to understand how masculinities are performed and transformed in everyday transactions.

Time: Thursday, 25 March 12.30-2.00 p.m.
Venue: NIAS, 3rd floor, Leifsgade 33, 2300 Copenhagen S
Chaired by: Cecilia Milwertz & Ravinder Kaur
Co-organized by NIAS - Nordic Institute of Asian Studies & ADI - Asian Dynamics Initiative
