|'Men as Fathers' - Timescapes project|
Hello and welcome to our BlogSpot! The ‘Men as Fathers’ Timescapes project is being carried out within the Cardiff University School of Social Sciences and is funded by the ESRC. The project looks at fathers’ roles in the family and how these are seen to have changed over time. This is considered in relation to cultural ideals of the ‘new father’ who is involved in hands on caring for his children and spending more time with the family. The project further considers how fathers negotiate their role through time in relation to their aspirations, fears, goals, wishes and desires. We also consider how masculinity is negotiated through different points in historical time as ideal forms of masculinity have changed in and between classes and cultures. We will be using the BlogSpot to provide updates on our research as well as our dissemination of the research findings. Very shortly we will be posting our leaflet and brochure that are currently in the making for opinions on whether people find them engaging and interesting to read. Look forward to hearing from you all soon. The 'Men as Fathers' Team. (Professor Karen Henwood, Carrie Coltart and Fiona Shirani)
