Liberating Masculinities

Liberating Masculinities

In this publication, funded in part by the NIHSS, Ratele undertakes the challenge of “grappling with manhood in a society that supports the ideal of gender equality.” The book is part of a larger body of work by the author whose scholarship endeavours to liberate men from warped conceptions of masculinities navigating fetishized commoditization, violence and fluid sexualities. The author challenges derisory accounts of black masculinity and offers “a critical appreciation of subjects in their locatedness in their marginalized worlds.” An insightful read, Liberating masculinities enables a beleaguered society to recognise and imagine alternative archetypes.
