Summary
Conceiving Masculinity vividly documents not only the gendering of infertility but also the cultural and institutional practices that maintain infertility as feminized. Through her conversations with men who have experienced infertility and her documentation of the history of the disorder, Barnes convincingly shows how both medical professionals and male patients do gender through the infertility process. As she explores the daily embodied practices that are part of the infertility process, Barnes exposes how the treatment relies on--and reinforces-- problematic norms and expectations about masculinity that may prevent doctors and researchers from uncovering more far-reaching solutions. --
