Film: TOUGH GUISE 2 – 12:30 pm, North Café. In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering antiviolence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men’s violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Followed by discussion with Dean of Students Jason Zelesky.
