Renewed attention has been focused on contemporary masculinity in the current climate of intense focus on sexual-harassment and social misconduct concerning gender relations. That attention has opened up questions and inquiries in sociology and related disciplines about toxic masculinity and the social misconduct of men. The papers in this session explore contemporary masculinity with the context of this current preoccupation. These presentations address questions such as how might new and relevant notions of healthy masculinity emerge, how might toxic masculinity be unpacked and confronted in scholarship, and how might these efforts truly affect broader social change aside from the creation of new laws increased legal intervention?
