    About this Event


    White Masculinity in Contemporary Australia by Andrea Waling explores the contradictory resistance to and adoration of ideals of masculinity, forms of Othering used to differentiate the practice of 'good' masculinity from that of 'bad' masculinity, the relationship between heterosexuality, masculinity and Australian sporting culture as central to ideals of masculinity, and the existence of differing pressures to be masculine.

    Join us for a informal discussion and celebration about the book!
