Examine Power, Men and Hegemony: a theoretical question?
Karlstad University, Faculty of Arts and Education, Department of Education.
2009 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract

To examine and understand how mens privileges and power positions are constituted, upheld and reproduced scholars have often use and also combine different concepts as Patriarchy/patriarchies, The Hegemony/Hegemonies of Men, Performativity, Heteronormativity, Discourse Theory and Intersectionality. In this paper are four concepts, which also in some ways are connected to each other, examined and discussed: Patriarchy/ies, The Hegemony of Men, Hegemonic Masculinity and Discourse Theory, the development of Gramscis hegemony concept. The concepts are compared and the concepts potential to catch and explain the ongoing reproduction of (certain) mens power positions are discussed. It is argued that all the concepts examined to some extent are fruitful, but also have important lacks. These lacks can in some ways be handled, by elaborating and combining the concepts with each other and integrating them with other concepts as Heteronormativity (Butler 1990), ANT (Actor-Network-Theory, Latour 2005) and Metronormativity (Halberstam 2005), that in new and fruitful ways make it possible to explore and describe the complex forms of male power and gender hierarchies now constituted and spread
