Coffee @ The Commons: Donna Zuckerberg
Supported by the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity and The Commons
Donna Zuckerberg is the author of Not All Dead White Men (Harvard University Press, 2018), which explores online communities of the far right to better understand why and where antifeminism is thriving online. It examines virtual communities where men express fear about having lost privilege and power and strategize about how to reclaim them. Zuckerberg links this movement to ancient Greek and Latin texts, citing the model of masculinity they purport, as a way to preserve and protect men’s rights.
This Coffee @ The Commons event will focus on how scholars can and should respond to this kind of misogynist material when they encounter it.
Zuckerberg will give the Keynote address for KU Masculinities Month, "Not All Dead White Men: Classics and Misogyny in the Digital Age," at 6pm on Wednesday, February 13 in the Burge Union, Forum A.
