August 7, 3 p.m.: In the aftermath of the Tulsa race massacre, white supremacists scapegoated a Black man by falsely accusing him of raping a White woman. This was a recurring theme in America’s history. How did Black masculinity get constructed as a scapegoat for white violence? Tommy Curry explains in “The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and the Dilemmas of Black Manhood.”
August 21, 3 p.m.: When Simone de Beauvoir wrote “The Second Sex,” she wrote about two genders: men, who are dominant, and women, who are oppressed. Today, we recognize a multiplicity of genders, and we can see how the patriarchy harms not just women, but anyone who isn’t a “Real Man.” Robin Dembroff explains in “Real Men on Top: How Patriarchy Weaponizes Gender.”
