The book “Rivalrous Masculinities” was published last year and it was edited by Ann Marie Rasmussen, one of the professors at our department.
The title of the volume originated in a research and teaching project. It brings together various essays by leading and emerging scholars about understanding medieval masculinity as a pluralized and as an intersectional category of gender. Both gender and masculinity are interpreted beyond heteronormativity. The essays focus on constructions of medieval masculinity in the context of femininity, class, religion, and place.
With contributions by Ann Marie Rasmussen, Clare A. Lees, Gillian R. Overing, J. Christian Straubhaar-Jones, Astrid Lembke, Darrin Cox, F. Regina Psaki, Corinne Wieben, Ruth Mazo Karras, Diane Wolfthal, Karma Lochrie, and Andreas Krass.
