about

In mid-nineteenth-century Britain, there existed a dominant discourse on what it meant to be a man –denoted by the term "manliness." Based on the sociological work of R.W. Connell and others who argue that gender is performative, Robert Hogg asks how British men performed manliness on the colonial frontiers of Queensland and British Columbia.

ROBERT HOGG lectures in Australian Studies at the University of Queensland, Australia, where he has also taught Australian history, world history, and the history of sex and sexuality. He has also taught at Griffith University, Australia.

Editorial Reviews

"Robert Hogg's insightful book presents a convincing argument for the cross-referencing of colonial experience within the framework of understanding masculinity." - Queensland Review "Men and Manliness on the Frontier is an accomplished piece of scholarship. Hogg offers a useful exploration of the ideological and material elements of frontier masculinity and makes good use of the archival treasures at his disposal. This book offers a valuable resource for anyone interested in the interconnections between lives, experiences and ideas in the history of masculinity." - Chris Brickell, Otago University
