About: In this talk Dr. Nall, will discuss feminism’s relevance to men. Feminists reject the notion that men are biologically destined to lives devoted to detachment and destruction. Rather, feminists contend that such a story of masculinity, be it told by theologians, philosophers, or scientists, is purposed to maintain a status-quo that readies boys for lives in armies of corporate profiteers; that it perpetuates the “man-eat-man” mentality that underlies consumerism and the objectification of human beings; and, on the whole, furthers a society premised on interaction between one egoist self to another. Dr. Nall explains the way in which feminist thinkers contend their philosophical and political movement possesses the insights capable of changing the consciousness of the men upon whom our hopes for peace and justice so significantly depend upon.
