Breaking the Man Box:
Reconstructing Masculinity in America

(followed by a recap & UAF based discussion until 1 or 2 pm for those who can stay, or want to join after noon)
Wood Center Multi-Level Lounge

What does it mean to be a man? 
Historically, certain images of masculinity have been foundational to American beliefs and values. Challenging these rigid constructs has resulted in major shifts in American society, opening up opportunities for new ideas about gender, identities, and behaviors. 
How are Women/Gender Studies challenging traditional cultural behaviors? How are ideas about masculinity shifting and helping families raise feminist sons? 
This conversation engages panelists and participants in an examination of manhood, maleness and masculinity by discussing cultural contexts such as sports, gaming and guns; male power in the marketplace; ethnic masculinities; paternity and parenting; artistic expression; and sexual expression and identity.
