CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Unit and Men, Masculinities, and Religions Unit

Call for Proposals for November Meeting

Kierkegaard and the Construction of Masculinities

Potential Co-sponsored session with the Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Unit and Men, Masculinities, and Religions Unit: 

The Men, Masculinities, and Religion unit and Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Unit invite proposals for a co-sponsored panel. This joint session invites papers exploring themes related to masculinity in Kierkegaard's writings, including how depictions of masculinity vary among his pseudonyms and the authorial voices in his signed works, as well as the understanding of masculinity implied by his authorship as a whole. Proposals exploring the general construction of masculinities in nineteenth century northern Europe will be welcomed to provide an overview of the intellectual and cultural background of Kierkegaard’s writings. Proposals will also be appreciated concerning the ways that Kierkegaard’s constructions of masculinity and spirituality may inform, critique, expand, or reinforce conceptions of masculinity in present times.
