Proving Masculinity: A Book Talk with Michael Kimmel


Please join us for a book talk with Michael Kimmel, who will discuss his most recent work, Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men, which explores how proving masculinity has become central to the lives of over 20 million college-aged men nation-wide.

This eventĀ is part of the Clayman Institute's 2012-2013 theme which focuses on moving beyond barriers between work, family, and society.

This event is co-sponsored by the Inter-Fraternity Council and Men Against Abuse Now.
