Masculine identity has never been more nebulous than in contemporary society. A social cacophony of cultural strait jackets are absorbed in a miasmic daze by men struggling with the blurring of self-perception and the usurpation of traditionally ascribed gender roles. As part of SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture, experts will engage in the latest City Talk to discuss what it means to be masculine in the 21st Century as males are exposed to an ever expanding array of pervasive imagery fuelling both diversity and ambiguity. The event will be chaired by University of Warwick Principal Teaching Fellow in Film Studies Jose Arroyo, with guests BCU Professor of Gender and Sexuality John Mercer, author Mark Simpson and University of Sunderland Professor of Sexual Cultures Clarissa Smith. We advise getting to the event early even if you have booked a free ticket to ensure entry.

Wed 22 Mar 6.15pm at BCU, The Parkside Building , City Centre Campus Curzon Street B4 7XG
