Masculinities in Transition

In the context of scholarship on men and masculinities, “transition” can mean many things. We may ask how critical studies of men and masculinities are changing, how discourse around men and masculinities are changing, how men’s lives are changing, or even how AMSA itself is changing – to name only a few of the directions that “transition” may take us in. “Transition” also carries specific connotations in relationship to transgender people, Trans Studies, and Queer Studies. In hosting this meeting, we invite and embrace all of these various meanings.

Conference Registration Information

Given the financial situation of many individuals and institutions in light of the global pandemic, and the reduced costs associated with hosting a virtual conference, AMSA has decided to significantly reduce our conference registration fees for 2021 in the following ways:

  • Registration is FREE for all students
  • Member registration has been reduced to $50 (usually $275)
  • Non-member registration has been reduced to $125 (usually $325)
If you are not yet a member and would like to take advantage of the reduced registration fee, be sure to JOIN AMSA prior to registering for the conference. Membership in AMSA costs $50, so you can save money while also gaining access to members-only benefits such as our database of course syllabi, our membership directory, and additional member benefits being developed.

Support AMSA Initiatives

We are also inviting you to consider donating to AMSA in order support the organization's ongoing operations during this time. When registering, you will be given the opportunity to donate in the following ways:

  • "Sponsor" a student - offsets the costs associated with free registration for students.
  • AMSA's General Gift Fund supports the ongoing operations of AMSA, with a particular focus on mentoring for new and emerging scholars and practitioners.
  • The Samuel Femiano Men's Studies Lecture Fund is an endowment created to support an invited Men's Studies plenary lecture each year at AMSA's annual conference.
  • The Loren Frankel Memorial Scholarship Fund is an endowment created to support annual competitive scholarships to one or more students attending and presenting at the annual conference.

We appreciate donations of any amount and also recognize that many are unable to give at this time. We appreciate your consideration.

Refund Policies

  • Full refunds of conference registration fees will be administered only if requested on or before Monday, May 31st, 2021
