AKD at VCU Presents: A lecture by Michael Kimmel

April 15
5 pm
The Commons Theater

With the recent furor over Title IX issues at universities across the United States, gender issues—particularly masculinity—are more important than ever. Dr. Kimmel examines the modern construction of masculinity in his book Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men. Dr. Kimmel traveled across the country interviewing thousands of young men to see what they had to say about their lives, and analyzed their responses within the context of gender.

Dr. Kimmel’s findings are fascinating and hold a great deal of promise in reshaping how we think about men and masculinity.

The Alpha Kappa Delta Sociology Honor Society invites you to come listen to Dr. Kimmel discuss his work on Guyland on April 15th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. We hope to see you there.
