Abstract [en]

This chapter provides an overview of how the work of Michel Foucault has been discussed within masculinity studies and feminist theory, and re-reads Focuault’s work as theories about men and masculinity. Two masculine figures that illustrate key components of his conceptual framework are discussed: the masturbating boy, where Foucault introduces the concepts dispositif (or apparatus) and biopower; and the free man in Greek and Latin antiquity, where he develops notions about the technologies of the self and the caesura of masculinity. These concepts are understood as technologies of gender that are useful to critical studies of men and masculinities.
