Tuesday7:30 PMAuthor Michael Kimmel: A Conversation about Guy-Culture
Denison University welcomes Michael Kimmel, author of the best-selling book “Guyland,” leading a moderated conversation about guy-culture and Denison.
In mapping the troubling social world where men are now made, Kimmel offers a view into the minds and times of America’s sons, brothers, and boyfriends, and he works toward redefining what it means to be a man today–and tomorrow. Only by understanding this world and this life stage can we enable young men to chart their own paths, stay true to themselves, and emerge safely from Guyland as responsible and fully formed male adults.
Kimmel, a distinguished professor of sociology and gender studies at Stony Brook University in New York, is considered one of the leading experts on men and masculinities.Address: Burton D.
