01.23.2013

Michael KimmelHIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 22, 2013 – High Point University’s Women’s and Gender Studies will host Dr. Michael Kimmel, who will present a lecture, titled “Mars, Venus, or Planet Earth? Women and Men on Campus in a New Millennium.” The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Feb. 6 in the Phillips Hall Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Kimmel, a leading researcher on masculinity studies in the United States, has authored more than 20 volumes, including “Changing Men: New Directions in Research on Men and Masculinity,” “The Politics of Manhood,” “The History of Men,” and more. His documentary history, “Against the Tide: Pro-Feminist Men in the United States, 1776-1990,” chronicled men who supported women’s equality since the founding of this country and has been called “an inspiring, pathbreaking collection of remarkable documents” and a “pioneering volume which will serve as an inspirational sourcebook for both women and men.”

Kimmel’s lecture is part of HPU’s Women’s and Gender Studies program and its commitment to diversifying the academic community through engaging and informative discussions on relevant topics.

“Dr. Kimmel is not only well known in the academic community, but is a distinguished figure in national debates on gender equality and masculinity in the United States,” says Dr. Jenn Brandt, director of Women’s and Gender Studies. “His talk in February will survey some of the recent controversies surrounding gender, while highlighting the benefits of social equality on college campuses as well as more generally in American culture.”
