About Dr. Emmanuel Rowlands
Dr Emmanuel Rowlands’s research interest is centred around two nodes: intimate partner violence on the one hand and critical men and masculinity studies on the other. Much of his thinking, writing, research, and public engagement actions are shaped directly or indirectly by these two fields of inquiry. His writings and engagements are critical to advancing social justice and empowering gender-based violence practitioners in South Africa. He values using non-academic mediums like radio shows to disseminate his scholarly work.
