Over the last decades, the study of the Masculine has entered in the field of social sciences as a central research topic. In particu- lar, Critical Studies on Men & Masculinities (CSMM) provide insightful tools to understand both the role of masculinity in sustaining asymmetric power dynamics in gender relations, and the heterogeneous ways in which subjects get to define themselves as men.

This paper aims both at summarizing the focal points of the debates on masculinities, and at assessing the contribution of a dialogue be- tween CSMM and psychoanalytic language in the study of men’s subjectivities. A promising point of contact to make this dialogue possible is Judith Butler’s post-structuralist rearticulation of Freud’s and Lacan’s works about the development of sexual identity.

Abstract

Over the last decades, the study of the Masculine has entered in the field of social sciences as a central research topic. In particu- lar, Critical Studies on Men & Masculinities (CSMM) provide insightful tools to understand both the role of masculinity in sustaining asymmetric power dynamics in gender relations, and the heterogeneous ways in which subjects get to define themselves as men. Nevertheless, there are still numerous theoretical aporias open to debate. This paper aims both at summarizing the focal points of the debates on masculinities, and at assessing the contribution of a dialogue be- tween CSMM and psychoanalytic language in the study of men’s subjectivities. A promising point of contact to make this dialogue possible is Judith Butler’s post-structuralist rearticulation of Freud’s and Lacan’s works about the development of sexual identity.
