Theorizing Masculinity and Intimate Partner Violence: From Radical Feminism to Queer Temporality? with Dr. Kalle Berggren

Men’s violence against women in intimate relationships remains a significant problem in many societies. Feminist scholars in different disciplines have come up with a range of different ways of theorizing the connections between men, masculinity and intimate partner violence. This talk will give a tour of the major theoretical approaches, including the contributions of radical feminism, criminological masculinity research, and intersectional perspectives. Drawing on ongoing research about young men perpetrators in Sweden, the talk will also discuss how research on masculinity and IPV can benefit from contemporary feminist and queer developments, such as queer temporality theorizing.
