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.)
