A Chronicle of the Modern Men's Movement comprises the largest research collection of archival materials about the modern men's movement.
The wide-ranging collection features manuscript materials, research
materials, ephemera, organizational files, conferences and events; a
large collection of nearly 350 periodicals and newsletters devoted to
the men's movement, many of which are quite rare; and the archives
of leading members of the various branches of the men's movement
who have donated their materials.
The Changing Men Collections is organized into three parts:
vertical files, periodicals and newsletters, and archives. The vertical
files document the development of the men's movement during the
last 25 years. Consisting of research materials on key issues and
topics in the men's movement, files cover African-American men,
battered men, circumcision, ecomasculinity, men's health, men's
movement and religion, teen fathers, shadow work, men's support
networks, the ManKind Project, anger management, and relationships.
The periodical and newsletter collection features nearly 350 titles
dating from the mid-1970s to early 2003. Many of these titles were
of short duration and not widely distributed. Today most are held
only by The Changing Men Collections at Michigan State
University. A majority of the runs are complete.
The archives consist of files of extensive materials on the work of
leading figures in various aspects of the men's movement, donated by
the researchers themselves, such as Bruce Curtis, Peter Cyr, Jeff
Beane, Joseph Pleck, Edward Honnold and Francis Baumli.
