Acculturation and Remasculation

Despite emerging research on marketplace-enabled masculinities, it is unclear how masculinities are reconstituted through consumption in the context of transnational mobility. A hermeneutic study of 14 skilled migrant men reveals three remasculation strategies: status-based hypermasculinity, localized hypermasculinity, and flexible masculinity. These represent a re-inscription and revision of pre-migration gender regimes.
