|'Men as Fathers' - Timescapes project|
In our research we are keeping track of the different images that appear in the media about men and fathers, and the kinds of issues that are being written about them. Why are we doing this? One reason is that we think it is important to be able put what men say about their lived experiences and the thoughts they have about their lives in a wider cultural context where ideas and messages are being circulated about them. Two recent articles are about the Prime Minister of the UK becoming a father for a fourth time (BBC) and gun culture in the US – how to some this represents protecting the child, whilst to others the child is seen at risk (Guardian). If you have any thoughts about what these images might be saying to us about the place of men and fathers in society today please let us know.
