Juan Carlos Ramírez Rodríguez, María del Pilar Gómez González, Norma Celina Gutiérrez de la Torre, Marcela Viridiana Sucilla Rodríguez


It was conducted a literature review on the relationship between masculinities and emotions, both understood as social constructs that respond to particular contexts. The principal aim is to describe the scientific production considering some parameters proposed by bibliometric studies. A comprehensive search of articles based on the definition of specific keywords and criteria according to a wide variety of databases of full text documents. The results of the systematization review show a very slow growth of these studies since the year 2000. More than a half of the studies were carried out in only two countries. There is a predominance of qualitative approach, particularly theoretical methods, such as ethnography, grounded theory and social constructionism. From the topics discussed in each of the studies, we propose a categorization to describe them and discuss implications of the emotions in the configuration of masculinities.
