Michael Kimmel

Everywhere we turn, there are pockets of rage among American men. Why would middle class white men be so angry? Kimmel will discuss this question, and the groups that organize and express that anger—from men’s rights groups, to men who “go postal” in their workplaces, to angry white boys, to the extreme right wing.

Michael Kimmel is a leading expert on men and masculinities. He is the SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Stony Brook University.
