Man Up: Toward a Positive Masculinity

This workshop is poised to examine the state of modern masculinity in the U.S.; what are the origins, nature, and consequences of "toxic masculinity"; and how we might envision and support a positive alternative to that.



Dr. Rai Wilson majored in History and minored in American and African-American Studies at Princeton University. He then went on to secure a law degree and PhD in History at the University of Virginia. He has taught at Francis Parker for nearly twenty years, and for ten of those also lectured in history, sociology, and law at the University of California, San Diego. He is particularly interested in questions of legal justice, and remedies to inequities of class, race, and gender. He is so proud of the students who've organized this conference, and excited to be a participant.
