Franco La Cecla
Blunt ways. Anthropology of masculinity


In his usual provocative style, La Cecla engages in such a daunting endeavour by looking at how the masculinity issue has been addressed in different cultures, societies and historical epochs. Contrary to what queer and transgender theories maintain, the author argues that gender identity is not a matter of individual choice, but precedes the birth of the individual. As well as rejecting male-chauvinism, the author offers the readers a view of masculinity, which is neither caricaturistic nor demonizing. Masculinity is the outcome of a long-term process of cultural construction, which not only exists independently of the individual’s sexual preferences, but also plays a fundamental role in the constitution of society as a whole. By drawing from the recent debate within anthropology, and from the great tradition of Foucault and Levinas, Franco La Cecla takes issue with the politically correct depictions that consider masculinity inherently evil, violent and oppressive.
