Brief description This research project proposes a comparative inquiry into the subjectivities of men who have migrated to Australia from six culturally diverse regions of the world. It intends to investigate the effects of migration on the (re)construction of male gender identity and men's attitudes in relation to women. In understanding the ways in which men from other cultures negotiate what it means to be a man in Australia, it will fill a major and increasingly important gap in our knowledge about contemporary masculinity and it will make a significant contribution to an understanding of the gendered dimensions of the migration experience.
