Course Description

Examine how boys and men learn what masculinity means today. We will look around ourselves to identify the unspoken rules of masculinity and lessons learned about being boys and men. We will discuss language such as “boys will be boys”, the media headlines, music, and masculinized spaces like locker rooms. We will also discuss the movement of men and boys as advocates for change and allies with others. This course centers on questioning the unspoken rules of what boys and men learn about being men, from each other and from women.
