Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men author Michael Kimmel – considered by many to be the world’s leading researcher and author on men and masculinity – will visit UNC Charlotte on March 11 at 7:00 PM as part of the 2014 Women's and Gender Studies Guest Speaker Series. The talk will occur in McKnight Hall in Cone University Center and is free and open to the public.
“In today’s society, young men may find themselves adrift, as their transition to adulthood has been delayed,” said Lisa Walker, lecture committee member and chair of the sociology department. “Dr. Kimmel has interviewed over 400 young men nationwide, and offers guidance toward a more conscious adulthood.”
Dubbed a male feminist and known for his wit and candid critiques, Kimmel has been a featured guest on the TODAY show, to discuss Guyland, and other national news outlets.
For summer school 2014, UNC Charlotte’s academic departments will offer more than 1,100 graduate and undergraduate courses and sections. With options for on-campus, online or hybrid delivery, there is likely something offered this summer that will meet even the most demanding schedules.
Attending summer school at UNC Charlotte can help shorten students’ time until graduation. Other reasons include the ability to focus on just one or two subjects instead of a full 12- or 15-hour course load; an opportunity to get a seat in the ever-popular LBST courses; and the option to take an elective on a topic that is of personal interest.
Registration opens Monday, March 24, and classes fill quickly. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor soon to plan out their summer schedule. Click here to see the list of available courses.
