Abstract and Keywords

The undergraduate teaching of the psychology of men and masculinity is the focus of this chapter. We first consider the content of this field, discussing in turn its organizational and publication resources, the Gender Role Strain Paradigm (the dominant theoretical paradigm in the field), other theoretical orientations in current use, the major areas of scholarly activity, and the available resources for teaching, including undergraduate textbooks. Second, we consider the pedagogy of teaching this field, beginning with feminist pedagogies and the importance of creating a collaborative learning environment, and then consider developing interpersonal and intrapersonal skills in addition to teaching core content. Exercises to enhance learning of hegemonic masculinity and intersectionality (two key concepts) are discussed. Then we cover experiential learning, including service learning and action projects. Finally, we address the importance of attending to social identity of both students and faculty.

Keywords: Psychology of men and masculinity, Gender Role Strain Paradigm, feminist pedagogy, hegemonic masculinity, intersectionality
