Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era

Everywhere we turn, there are pockets of rage among American men. Why would middle class white men be so angry? In this lecture drawn from the book "Angry White Men," Michael Kimmel will discuss why men seem so angry and the different groups that organize and express that anger: from men's rights groups, to men who "go postal" in their workplaces, to angry white boys, to the extreme right wing.


Michael Kimmel, distinguished professor of sociology and gender studies at Stony Brook, State University of New York, is one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinity. His books include "Manhood in America," "Angry White Men," "The Politics of Manhood," "The Gendered Society," and "Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men." Founder of the Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities in 2013, he is a tireless advocate of engaging men to support gender equality. He has delivered international lectures in Europe and around the world and has spoken at more than 300 colleges, universities and high schools. He also consults widely with corporations, NGOs and public sector organizations on gender equity issues. The Guardian newspaper in London has called him “the world’s most prominent male feminist”.

Co-sponsored by the Association of Human Communication, the School of Social Transformation, Justice Studies, Women & Gender Studies, the Transformation Project and the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication.
