Series description

Emerald Advances in Masculinities brings together diverse discussions of masculinities to give you a space to develop alternative voices and perspectives that push the boundaries in discussions of masculinities.

Books in the series explore some of the major current concepts that traverse a range of methodologies, theoretical perspectives, and conceptualisations related to the critical studies of men and masculinities.

Whether you want to publish a monograph, Emerald Points, an edited collection, or a handbook, the series is home to the best research in this area from internationally-recognised academics to early-career researchers.

We publish books from scholars across the world in fields ranging from criminology, sociology, psychology, law, and critical gender studies and beyond, as well as those using trans- and inter- disciplinary perspectives.

We encourage research conducted by sole authors as well as collaborative research that shares methods and conceptual frameworks across disciplines in the synthesis of knowledge and that provides a holistic perspective when researching masculinities.

Emerald Advances in Masculinities provides a platform for innovative research methods that explore a range of differing perspectives that relate to critical research on masculinities across settings that include, but are not limited to:

  • Prisons
  • Spaces of confinement
  • Detention
  • Risk
  • Migration
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Consumption
  • Leisure
  • Sport
  • Technology
  • Surveillance
  • Health
