‘New Male Studies’

I recently learned of an interesting new publication, New Male Studies http://newmalestudies.com. The Editor is a psychology professor based in New York, Dr Miles Groth. He’s also a philosopher. More details about this estimable gentleman on http://www.wagner.edu/departments/psychology/groth.

I recently contacted Dr Groth to congratulate him on the launch of New Male Studies and sent him a copy of The Glass Ceiling Delusion. He’s informed me that he’s going to review the book for New Male Studies and suggested I submit an article relating to the book’s content for publication in the next issue, which I shall do. He’s also going to review Feminism: The Ugly Truth. He invited me to join the Board of Advisers, which I’ve accepted, although I’ll be one of the very few non-academics on the Board (almost all of the Board members are professors). It’s very encouraging to see a group of leading academics critique gender-related issues other than from an ideological feminist standpoint. I wish NMS every success, and I shall do what I can to support it.

The following is drawn from the New Male Studies website:

New Male Studies: An International Journal (NMS) is an open access online inter-disciplinary journal for research and discussion of issues facing boys and men worldwide. In response to a now well-documented decline in the overall well-being of males in postmodern culture, a group of Australian, Canadian, European and American scholars have gathered together to publish research, essays, opinion pieces, and book reviews on all aspects of the male experience.

The content of the maiden issue, released in December 2011, is available to download from the website http://newmalestudies.com free of charge:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
