Please join us on Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015 in The Center for the Arts (Building 1P), Room 223 for the Dean’s Symposium, “Masculinities.”
In sociology, the term “hegemonic masculinity” defines a single idea of manhood that dominates a culture, but scholars of gender have often preferred to speak of “Masculinities,” plural. This session raises questions about that multiplicity in several historical contexts. Panelists will discuss conflicting ideas about masculinity in the work of 16th-Century Italian writers, in models of male behavior in the late 19th Century, and in the 20th-century novels of James Baldwin.
This is a CC CLUE event.
