Formatted Summary/Description
The articles in this issue of the Journal of Australian Studies were commissioned as an historical survey and critical analysis of the Australian male, focusing on prominent sites on which masculinity is exhibited in public and private spheres, from convicts to colonial settlers, from military, sporting and musical heroes, to larrikins, ockers, rock'n'roll legends and movie stars, to sensitive new age guys and gay men. Along a path from colonial to contemporary masculinities, this collection of historical accounts constantly challenges the nature of gender and power, intimate relations between men and men and between men and women, mateship, the image of the bushman and the fair dinkum Aussie male. The subject matter concerns multiple Australian 'masculinities' not monolithic unproblematic 'masculinity'.
