Though the literature on masculinity has increased dramatically in the last 15 years, researchers have recently begun to explore the notion of Indigenous masculinities. The majority of research has emerged in the pacific islands and Africa, and has garnered sparse attention in North America. Through course readings of articles and book and written assignments, this reading intensive course will introduce students to the issues of masculinity from a global Indigenous perspective and provide an introduction to the general masculinity literature.
