Open Dialog: Toxic Masculinity

German-American Topics in English with Jason Brown

Following the third wave of feminism and female empowerment, the current debate around gender roles in the 21st century has shifted from the female to male and more specifically, to the socially-constructed notion that casts men as violent, aggressive, unemotional actors in society – better known as toxic masculinity. In recent years, more and more men have started speaking out about this type of masculinity which limits the repertoire of behaviors and attitudes that seem to be socially legitimized and accepted for men. In modern so-called "culture wars", however, toxic masculinity is also caricatured and thrown around as the catch-all source of society’s evils.

Instead of falling into this trap, let’s take a nuanced approach to modern gender roles and let’s talk about toxic masculinity!

 The discussions will take place online. You will receive a link to the virtual meeting room upon registration.
