Class description

In every community around the world there are different opinions about who is “really masculine.” And globally, boys and men hurt themselves and each other and die younger than girls and women. Many scholars and activists think that trying to live up to masculine ideals contributes to these patterns. But which ideals? Where? Using media, research and active exploration, this class examines masculinity: what is it, who has it, what are the consequences? How are the answers different in different communities? In our own lives?
