Two board members of the American Men’s Studies Association along with Professor Chris Haywood of Newcastle University, UK, are editors of the new publication: Journal of Bodies, Sexualities and Masculinities (JBSM). Jonathan A. Allan, Brandon University, Canada and Frank G. Karioris, University of Pittsburgh, USA along with Professor Haywood have issued a call for articles. Download the call for papers (pdf). To be considered for inclusion in the inaugural issues, the Editors recommend that submissions be received by March 1, 2019; however, all submissions will be considered for future issues.
The Journal of Bodies, Sexualities and Masculinities is a new peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal founded by Haywood, Allan, and Kairoris along with AMSA Board member Andrea Waling, La Trobe University, Australia. It brings together critical studies of men and masculinities and sexuality studies to better understand the complexities of masculinities and sexualities, and especially the way they intersect with one another.
JBSM provides a venue for research on men’s sexualities and all of their complexities – temporal, medical, geographic, cultural, ethnic, legal – by welcoming submissions from the social sciences, humanities, life sciences, and health studies that are theoretically rigorous, methodologically sound, and draw on interdisciplinary approaches. The journal not only reports cutting edge empirical research findings, but is committed to providing an avenue for theoretically-driven and conceptual articles that offer new theoretical, methodological and empirical insights.
JBSM serves a readership of academics, policy makers, researchers and practitioners, as well as broader stakeholders in private and third sector industries. In response to the growing interest in men’s sexualities in recent years, and numerous issues concerning men and sex are being highlighted across the world including the mainstream press, JBSM is committed to ensuring that its informed scholarship is accessible to both a general public and an academic audience precisely because ideas matter.
