Some days ago in Studia Humanistyczne AGH several papers on the on the variety of issues regarding men and masculinities have been published. The papers have been collected for the purpose of special issue edited by me and Urszula Kluczynska and deal with men and masculinities issues in a European, Polish, Norwegian, Swedish and Czech context, with authors residing in Poland, Czech Republic, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Austria, Norway and Slovenia. It is worth to mention that our collection is the very first special issue on critical research on men and masculinities published in Polish peer-reviewed journal and can be seen as one of the milestones in terms of establishing Polish (and Eastern European) critical studies on men and masculinities. All papers are highly interesting and definitely worth to take a look!
