Tri-C Speaker Examines Presidential Campaigns And the Politics of Manhood
Author Jackson Katz headlines March 9 program at Western Campus
Have American presidential campaigns turned into a referendum on manhood? Author Jackson Katz believes so, and he’ll discuss that theory in an upcoming discussion at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The free program — “Leading Men: Presidential Campaigns and the Politics of Manhood” — will take place from 12:30-1:45 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, in Tri-C’s Western Campus Theatre in Parma.
Katz will focus on how the very notion of being “presidential” is linked closely to evolving ideas on being a man, offering a new way to analyze the role of identity politics in presidential campaigns.
His next book — "Man Enough? Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the Politics of Presidential Masculinity" — comes out in May.

Katz is an educator, author, documentary filmmaker and cultural theorist. He also co-founded Mentors in Violence Prevention, an example of his pioneering work and activism regarding issues of gender and violence.
His visit is part of the Carol S. Franklin Social Science Speakers Series sponsored by the Western Campus Division of Social Sciences. The series provides a forum to enhance awareness of current events and issues relevant to the community.
