  • Description
    Over the last few years there has been an increasing interest in studying masculinities in the south Asian region. Masculinities, the gender system that makes men, remains the least researched pool of darkness of the south Asian reality. We certainly know the obvious—the visible, hegemonic masculinity that bristles and valorously displays its wares but what about various other masculinities, those that remain silent, pushed under and un-recognised. What is the story of these masculinities? How do these masculinities relate with each other? Are they locked in some form of permanent conflict? Why are some forms of masculinity more assertive and more public? How do these masculinities impact on gender relations? Are various forms of masculinities definite, unbreakable, permanent or do they form historically, decay, change and transform? This graphic book, a mixed-media production comprising drawings, photographs, text and video frames attempts to frame these questions in a creative and reader-friendly mode.

    Drawing on popular culture, socialisation charts used in schools, poetry, personal stories and documentary footage, the book brings together main theories, key concepts and empirical research on masculiniites. Designed to be an introduction to the study of masculinities, it utilises a south Asian tapestry to discuss the state of knowledge in the field.

    Rahul Roy is an independent documentary film maker. Besides directing a number of internationally acclaimed films on the theme of masculinities, he has also written widely on men and gender issues.
