The military has been central to constructing and legitimating societal ideas about what it is to be a man throughout history. This event will examine some of these ideas from a critical perspective. The event consists of a group activity to help those in attendance think about dominant ideas about masculinity and femininity in our society , a presentation, and a group discussion.
The event assumes no knowledge and is intended to be generally accessible. The presentation section makes extensive use of video clips and approaches this topic in the tradition of cultural studies.
Content Notice : Some of the video clips contain strong language and so this event is unsuitable for children.
