Cirus Rinaldi, Marco Bacio

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

The chapter discusses the positive public role of gay and queer masculinities in their intersection with other identity configurations (class, race, and able-bodiedness). Their contribution, titled “The queer researcher: challenging homonormativity in research and educational settings,” presents an overview of the main perspectives on social construction and representation of homosexual masculinities within educational and academic settings using critical masculinities theory. While challenging homonormativity in research and education representations of the “rational man” and “macho ethics” of male researchers who “discover,” “conquer,” and investigate “systematically” or “rigorously” are analyzed. Criticizing the role of inexpressiveness and emotionlessness objectivity as criterion of academic writing, research, and teaching is put into question. Emotions are considered as valuable analytical tools which allow us to understand how social factors are deployed and act in the world. The chapter shows how reflexive awareness of the power structures within the field of research and education helps avoid preconceived ideas and universalization of identity categories.
