Session 3: Masculinity and Power: Community and Societal
The Masculinities Project is a semester long cohort with the mission to understand the construction and impact of masculinities on individuals and communities. Through facilitated critical dialogue and action students come together to learn about masculinities, share experiences related to masculinities and envision a more gender equitable and socially just campus community and society. This is a closed cohort held in the Women’s Center.
Join the NC State Women’s Center and our campus partner the African American Cultural Center for the Spring 2019 Exhibition “The Politicization and Sexualization of Black Bodies” exhibit features the visual counternarratives of our NC State community of students, staff, and faculty. This exhibit intends to refute the dominant discourse about a subset of our campus population, those whom are Black identified and exist within the margins of institutions that are not historically designed to support them and has only made minimal change towards their inclusion. These narratives provides space for real experiences, stories, and celebration of what it means to be more than a body in a historically white institution.
