To continue our consideration of gender and power, we will discuss a very recent critique of R. W. Connell’s enormously influential concept of hegemonic masculinity in Ben Griffin, ‘Hegemonic Masculinity as a Historical Problem’ (Gender & History, July 2018).
With the renewed use of slogans such as ‘smash the patriarchy’, and following our discussion earlier this year of Judith Bennett’s ‘Patriarchal Equilibrium’, we would like to continue questioning the analytical value of the concept of patriarchy.

This symposium will suggest new ways of seeing the relationship between interpretation, law, and justice: other spaces and cultural practices, other ways of reading and non-reading, other crystallisations of rules, order and discipline.
