Hearn, Jeff and Lattu, Emmi (2002) The recent development of Finnish studies on men: a selective review and a critique of a neglected field. Nora: Nordic Journal of Women's Studies, 10 (1). pp. 49-60. ISSN 0803-8740

Though the study of men and masculinities has always been part of Women's Studies, recent Finnish studies on men have often developed without explicit attention to gender relations. In a Nordic context, Finnish studies on men have been relatively neglected. In this article we provide a concise review of Finnish research on men, including special reference to men's relations to home and work, men's violences, and the social exclusion of men. We present a synthetic account of the recent development of these studies and a critique of the field, and suggest some ways forward in future studies.
