1. Ross, Jon. "“Man Up?” “Man Down?” Man Overboard? The New Male Identity and “Mascu-Lingo” of the 21st Century" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Southern Political Science Association, Hotel InterContinental, New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan 12, 2012 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2020-02-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p544911_index.html>

Abstract: “Man Up.” “The End of Men.” Manning Up. Man Down. If popular press is any indication, a new discourse is emerging around American men and their identity in the 21st Century. The prevailing wisdom (not to mention economic and social realities) is that hegemonic masculinity and the traditional male identity that accompanies it are receding – if not irrelevant in a post-industrial economy built on brains over brawn, of “knowledge jobs” over those traditionally considered “manly.” If language and rhetoric are important signifiers of emerging social change and new attitudes, the old Macho is on its way out. Even the global economic downturn has a gender-appropriate term: “He-Cession.”

While these euphemisms and taglines might help sell manuscripts and serve as fodder for late-night hosts, they also represent important issues for public policymakers and private-sector leaders. For example, “work-family balance” – created to accommodate the explosion of working mothers over the past generation – now calls for adaptation to men seeking a “daddy track,” if only because millions of men in two-income families are no longer primary breadwinners. The ramifications of this emerging discourse – especially the public policies and private-sector practices required to respond to changing family economics and demographics – present an important challenge. How do American society, government, business, and media move from the “mommy track” to something more accommodating to men – without becoming a “mommy state?”

The paper will provide an overview of this emerging “mascu-lingo” and the policies and practices needed to respond to the trends it signifies.

The role of the school psychological diagnostic test in directing children into a special education career" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISPP 32nd Annual Scientific Meeting, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, Jul 14, 2009 <Not Available>. 2020-02-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p314361_index.html>

Abstract: This presentation is a chapter from ethnographic research whose aim was to study the social representations of Israeli elementary school staffs, which direct children from the general educational system into various special education frameworks. An interpretive analysis of the findings found a continuous social selection process directing children into various education careers, removing certain children from the normative system.
The Israeli school system’s declared ideological position is one of inclusion and opposes exclusions. Despite “the class” as the basic structural element of the elementary school, a fundamentally inclusive construct designed to take in all of the region’s children, many institutions have been built into the school to serve stratification and exclusion. One of the most outstanding was the psychological educational diagnostic test. On one hand the ideology of the psychological diagnosis, in the educational discourse was one of inclusion and assistance in mainstreaming children, based on an egalitarian social outlook; on the other hand, in practice, the psychological diagnosis has served as a classifying and excluding tool representing a stratified, hierarchical social outlook.
The representation of the diagnostic test as an “objective” instrument supporting exclusion, camouflages the removal of children into the special education track. . The decision to direct the child to a special education framework almost inevitably follows testing, and the evaluation becomes an irretrievable act, a kind of ritual of exclusion. Thus, the decision to send a child for psychological diagnostic testing has become almost identical with the decision to exclude him from the normative system.

Nineteenth-Century Man: Ivan Kalashnikov’s Autobiographical Novel Automaton" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies 45th Annual Convention, Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2020-02-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p653406_index.html>

Abstract: In 1841 Ivan Timofeevich Kalashnikov (1797-1863) published Automaton, his last novel. Known to many of his contemporaries as the “Siberian Fenimore Cooper,” Kalashnikov established a name for himself during the 1830s by writing romantic adventure stories about Siberia, his homeland. Unlike his previous novels, which were set in the past, Automaton was plainly autobiographical, the story of an Irkutsk scribe’s boy who moves to St. Petersburg and struggles to make a career for himself in the imperial capital while fending off the predations of dissolute liudi deviatnadtsatogo veka—“men of the nineteenth century.” When read alongside Kalashnikov’s private correspondence with family and friends back in Siberia, the novel, as I will show in this paper, offers a revealing window on questions of state service, religious belief, and identity in Nicholas I’s empire.

Abstract: We report an innovative collaborative partnership in which a gay man and a straight man evolve a new metanarrative from a serial discursive interpretation of data over time. The data is from interviews about the experience of gay men coming out at work and the gay/straight dialogue is informed by the participants’ respective positioning in the heteronormative and homonormative worlds. The collaboration shows how we construct a “reality” from often vague data, conjointly seek to give voice and meaning to the ‘other’ who is absent.

Abstract: Ralph Ellison’s seminal work, Invisible Man, has received critical acclaim for its ability to provide one of the truest relations of the Black experience. Ellison addresses the various conflicts society faces in consequence of the intentional dismantling of masculinity belonging to African American males.
Yet, for all its acclaim feminist continue to take issue with Ellison’s depiction of women. They claim that the ideology of gender that is represented in the imagery and language expresses a hypocritical perspective of freedom and individuality concerning women. However, a critical analysis of the novel along with peer reviewed sources concerning feminism and critical race theory reveals a deeper issue. One that asserts the internalized oppression and stunted sexuality felt by the victim. Best evidenced thru his struggles against society, his formation of sadistic and dependent relationships with women, and his need to assert his masculinity by oppressing other parties.
It is concluded that the narrator’s masculinity and sexuality are stunted due to the forced traumatization experienced during the Battle Royale scene, when the narrator is still a teenager, the event causes the narrator to form convoluted and stereotypical perspectives of women, robbing them of the identity and individuality that the novel champions for. By conducting this research one can better comprehend the real world issues and concerns centered around the Black male masculinity, relationships between man and woman, and the trickle-down effect of patriarchal oppression.
