Art, Culture, & Society
Meeting Time: Mondays, 2:30-4:20 pm
Semester Length: Class meets on alternating weeks
Gender plays a highly important, but often hidden role in men’s lives. Being a man in the ways that society prescribes is a constructed and changing concept. Talking about masculinities allows us to investigate behaviors and cultures associated with men, and the different ways of being a man. In this course, we will discuss men and masculinities in the context of societal and media images of men in college.
- Develop knowledge of strategies to recognize healthy masculinities.
- Understand gender difference across and within masculine identities and how gender stereotypes affect men in college.
- Apply concepts on gender and healthy masculinities to reflect on your experiences as a man in college and create space for other students and college faculty and staff to do the same.
These learning outcomes will be achieved not only by course readings, discussions, and assignments, but also connecting and engaging with campus and local gender related programming at BGSU including participating in service-learning with Ohio Consortium for Men and Masculinities Conference.
