Masculinity, Sexual Behavior and Health

Freya Sonenstein, PhD

Arik V. Marcell, MD

Course Number: 380.720

Reading seminar focusing on male adolescent health and sexual issues and explores the meaning of masculinity and the impact of masculine beliefs on men’s health and health care use. Students critique the literature and explore methods to design interventions working within a masculinity framework to improve men’s health outcomes.

Masculinities. Connell, R. W. Berkeley: University of California Press. 2005 is readily available in NZ libraries.

At present, the basic course materials are accessible on internet. (In other words, this course does not include video lectures and course notes, in the way that many open courses provide. This is understandable, as this course is seminar based.)

If anyone would like to form a discussion group in NZ, please get in touch? (The original course covers everyday issues, but not suicide.)
