What It Means to be a Man in the 21st Century FREE


Join us on Wednesday 22 March in the Parkside Lecture Theatre as our panel of experts consider what it means to be 'masculine’ in the 21st century, and how everything from gay pornography to Hollywood blockbusters, and Tinder to ‘The Only Way Is Essex’, are fuelling its diversity, as well as its ambiguity.

From bodybuilding to ‘lad’ culture, and from the metrosexual to the lumbersexual, the masculinities of popular culture have never seemed so dynamic and generative. As a result, this City Talk will debate how men both negotiate and struggle with their identities in the modern world.

Hosted in partnership with SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture.
