NYMASA Conference: American Masculinities

The New York Metro American Studies Association (NYMASA) is delighted to announce our 2013 annual one-day conference


Saturday November 2nd, 9am-6pm, at Pace University, Downtown Manhattan Campus

In recent years, scholars in American Studies have turned their attention to men and masculinity. This year’s NYMASA conference will continue this exploration, interrogating the various meanings and manifestations of

manhood, manliness, and masculinity in the United States from the colonial period to the present day.

Highlights include a lunchtime presentation by Michael Kimmel, and a culminating roundtable featuring David Leverenz, Robert Reid-Pharr, and Tom Léger.
