Though the literature on masculinity has increased dramatically in the last 15 years, researchers have only recently begun to explore the notion of Indigenous masculinities. The majority of research has emerged in the pacific islands and Africa, but has garnered sparse attention in North America. Through articles and books, lectures, class discussion, and written assignments, this course will introduce students to the issues of masculinity from global Indigenous perspectives and provide an introduction to the general masculinity literature. The course will explore to what degree the notions of masculinity in general, and global Indigenous masculinities specifically, applies to the North American context.
