Masculinity & Blank-Phobia
Date(s) - Tuesday, November 15, 2016
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Presented by: UIC Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change
When we think about masculinities, we often think of strength and power. What about fear and vulnerability? In this dialogue we will explore issues such as homophobia, femmephobia, and ideas of weakness. In the end, we hope to identify and work to address phobias that limit our masculinities.
- Dialogue facilitated by Dr. S, Assistant Director of the UIC Gender and Sexuality Center!
The Reimagining Masculinities Initiative is a collaboration between the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change (CCUSC) that strives to cultivate, support, affirm, and create male allies and advocates. Through dialogues, films, workshops and personal stories, this initiative unpacks what it means to be masculine, and explores issues of masculinity and gender.
