International Conference September 29th to October 1st, 2021 BARCELONA
Current times demand that we focus on the present and rethink about the future and its conditions of feasibility. When we started designing this fifth edition of “Men in Movement”, we wanted to address the challenges posed by the connection between men and masculinities and current issues such as nationalism, the environment, bodies and sexualities and decolonisation. We had no idea, then, that a global pandemics would make thinking about our futures even more urgent.
This fifth edition of the international conference Men in Movement will be celebrated in Barcelona from September 29th to October 1st, 2021, with the title “MIM V: Masculinities and Feasible Futures”. This title opens the room for scholarly and socially engaged dialogues concerned with the feasibility of the society in which we currently live and the kind of futures that it prefigures.
The PROGRAMMEincludes five dialogues between two invited speakers to open up the general discussion.
The ‘Masculinity in times of change‘ online symposium (20-22 September) organized by MASCNET is an associated activity to the Men in Movement Conference.
The Conference is structured around five different key themes:
One of our core values is to provide a space for dialogue and debate between academia and activism; we also aim to impulse bridging collaborations. Researchers, activists, social workers, other professionals, consultants, students and people interested in gender justice, social issues, gender and masculinities are most welcome.
We know these are uncertain times and there is the risk that this conference is affected by the current pandemics. We will follow government recommendations and health regulations to ensure everybody’s wellbeing and will eventually let you know if any changes are necessary.
