This series has been created in conjunction with the performance “He” in Austin, TX in April. The performance is a dystopian meditation on patriarchy and toxic masculinity, and whether or not the possibility exists of restructuring masculinity within a feminist, collaborative, decolonized/decolonizing framework.
In our classes, we will begin with the basics, thinking through gender-as-performance and how patriarchy shapes those performances. We will then look at a series of articles that consider how toxic masculinity shapes the current administration, before exploring what better modes of being might be out there. Please join us.
