Sustainable Masculinites and Degrowth

A new paper published by  Pierre Smith Khanna, R&D member and 2021 Junior Research Fellow at IPE  on Sustainable Masculinites and Degrowth.

“Sustainable Masculinities and Degrowth: Pathways to Feminist Post-Growth Societies” views the climate crisis through a degrowth lens, but centers the role (hegemonic) masculinity has played in creating and sustaining the growth paradigm. Though much has already been said about the origins of economic growth, and much written about the oppressive nature of patriarchal systems with respect to women and the environment, efforts to integrate the two with the study of masculinities and the effects these processes have had on men are few and far between. This paper breaks new ground and extends an invitation to degrowth to challenge (its own) hegemonic masculinity.
