Gender Studies Institute Hosts Gender Café, “Manhood: Stories from the Front”

Gender Studies Event
Trinity Western University
Graduate Collegium, Fosmark Building
7600 Glover Road
Langley, BC V2Y 1Y1

Facilitators and Panelists:

The Gender Café will be facilitated by Drs. Robynne Healey and Holly Faith Nelson.

The panel of speakers include TWU alumnus Clayton Andres and current students Davinder Ramona and Nate Froehlich.

There will be a 30-minute question period and discussion after the stories are shared.

Is there a single version of manhood or are there a range of ways to be, and live as, a man in the world? How does religious identity inform manhood? What makes a man sufficiently “masculine”? What forms of masculinity are helpful and what forms are toxic? How do men know that they are “man enough” and why are some men told to “man up or go home”? How should a man behave after the #metoo movement? Why do some men turn to harmful groups like the Incels? These questions and more will be addressed at our November Gender Café through the stories of three men from different backgrounds and contexts.

The gender café is, as always, free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

All are welcome to attend and participate in the respectful conversation.
