The Barriers of Boyhood and Masculinity

from 35.00

Course description: At schools around the country, questions about the “problems” of boyhood keep cropping up. Why are boys more likely to drop out of school? Why are boys diagnosed with ADHD at a higher rate? Why are boys suffering scholastically compared to girls, far more likely to end up in juvenile detention facilities and prison, and far more likely to take their own lives?

Utilizing some some new theoretical constructs as well as a historical and systemic overview of masculinity, we'll discuss these pernicious aspects of boyhood and masculinity, as well as concrete approaches to overcoming the barriers and connecting with boys and young men.

Activities in this course will include discussions on gender and masculinity, the myths and realities of boyhood, a survey of contemporary and historical research, the importance of addressing the root problems creating gendered barriers, and possible interventions (both on the individual and cultural level) to create safer, more fruitful learning environments for all youth.

Course content was developed by Sam Killermann who is a social justice comedian, and the guy behind It’s Pronounced Metrosexual, a one-man comedy show and blog about snap judgments, identity, and oppression (but in a totally funny way). He’s the author of The Social Justice Advocate’s Handbook: A Guide to Gender, a TEDx Talker about Gender, the founder of the international non-profit Gamers Against Bigotry, and co-creator of The Safe Zone Project.
