Are You Man Enough: Performing Contemporary Masculinities

  • Starts: 7:30 pm on Thursday, February 1, 2018
  • Ends: 9:00 pm on Thursday, February 1, 2018
How do we define masculinity today–is there only one masculinity, or are there many American masculinities contingent upon ethnicity, race, sexuality, ability, age, and even the region in which one is raised? This talk will explore a short history of American masculinities; where notions of masculinity come from; whether or not “masculinity” is confined to those with biologically male bodies; and what it means to be a “real man” and the pressures of / resistances to rigidly policed expectations of masculine performance.
