Next Gen Men Circle talks Untangling Masculinity
It’s taken for granted that we « know » what masculinity is. But how can we challenge ourselves to go deeper, beyond what we think we know?
About this event
We’re revisiting this topic from January 2021 because it was so well attended, and folks had so much to say!
Masculinity is a trending topic that is described in an increasing number of ways — from toxic and hegemonic to positive and healthy.
With such a wide variety of ways masculinity can be described, it can be tough to know not only where to begin, but where to go afterwards!
This month, we’ll dive into both the academic (like hegemonic) and more commonly used (like toxic) descriptors around masculinity, and together we’ll explore their usage and meaning.
We’ll also discuss what theorists have come up with to describe what the future of masculinity could look like — ideas like Gelfer’s Five Stages of Masculinity.
We’re going to build upon our knowledge of gender equality and masculinity, and then challenge ourselves to go deeper or to think differently about what we think we already know.
So whether you’re highly versed in gender theory, or just getting started and interested in expanding your knowledge, join us as we learn with and from each other!
We hope to see you on September 29th at 7pm Pacific Time as we untangle masculinity together!
