Doing research men as men: politics and problems

What issues arise in doing research on men and masculinities, and doing research as men? What happens to feminist methodological norms and insights when they are taken up in such research? This paper addresses these questions to arrive at an outline of the possibilities for pro-feminist and anti-patriarchal research both on and by men. Dilemmas in such research are illustrated through discussion of a series of in-depth interviews undertaken with young heterosexually active men, interviews which investigated these men’s sexual practices and relations, meanings and discourses.
