About the book

In a world in which gender order continues to extend privilege to men over women, the quest to understand (re)production of masculinities remains at the heart of the gender and queer studies, and is more pertinent than ever due to exacerbating gender inequalities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Masculinities are produced and reproduced through our daily interactions and within the larger institutions of society. They vary historically, culturally, and contextually.

This book intends to bring together theoretical perspectives and empirical research on men and masculinities in local and transnational contemporary societies. It is concerned with the gender order and the social construction of what it means to be “a man”, including the patterns of behavior related to men’s position in a given set of gender roles and relations in specific contexts, cultures, and times (also including COVID-19 pandemic). Employing an interdisciplinary approach, the book aims to cover (re)production and representations of hegemonic masculinities and gender relations in a range of social contexts including education, workplace, family, society, sports, technology, and media, and within a broader range of topics including identity, body, sexuality, age, culture, and class.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Andrea Tomurad

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
