Hearn, Jeff, Novikova, Irina, Smidova, Iva, Jyrkinen, Marjut, Iovanni, LeeAnn, Arranz, Fátima, Kolga, Voldemar, Balkmar, Dag and Wojtaszek, Marek (2013) Studying Men’s Violences: Some Key Methodological Principles in Developing a European Research Framework. Masculinities and social change, 2 (1). pp. 82-115. ISSN 2014-3605

This article sets out some key methodological principles in developing a European research framework for studying men’s violences. This involves attention to gendered analysis and gendered power relations; gender collaboration; interconnections between social arenas; ethical and political sensitivities; examining and problematising roots and explanations of men’s violences; building on and reviewing the contribution of Critical Studies on Men; use ofmultiple methods, methodologies and epistemological frames; and, addressing intersections of multiple dimensions of power and disadvantage. Together, these principles and perspectives assist in developing a comparative and transnational orientation, by attending to cultural variations, convergences and divergences in time and space, and intersecting forms of power relations in the study ofmen’s violences in a European context.
