Abstract [en]

May I start with two observations? First, men’s relations to feminism are problematic—there is always a gap, a gap between men and feminism; second, the gendering of men and masculinities is now recognised. There are several challenges here. The gender challenge concerns how to move from the presumed "genderlessness" of men towards the gender-consciousness of being a man/men. Another challenge concerns the "public/private," the disruption of dominant narratives of "I" of men and the masculine "I." There is also a temporal challenge, of moving away from simple linearity of the "I." Together, these challenges can be seen as moving away from taken-for-granted "gender power-coherence" towards gender power-consciousness. To address these kinds of question means interrogating the uneven non-equivalences of what it means to be male, a man, masculine. This is not easily reduced to sex or gender. Rather gender/sex, or simply gex, helps to speak of such blurrings.
