Michael Kimmel, a leading researcher and writer about men and masculinity, will speak at the University of Richmond Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. in Tyler Haynes Commons, Alice Haynes Room. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Kimmel is author or editor of more than 20 books, including “Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men,” which has been the focus of a campus-wide book discussion series this year.

Kimmel’s lecture is the culminating event of the discussion series, “One Book, One Campus,” which is sponsored annually by the Office of the Chaplaincy. Faculty, staff and students read and discuss a book about a social justice issue.
Kimmel is professor of sociology at State University of New York – Stony Brook, where he teaches courses on sociology of gender and masculinity. His 1996 book, “Manhood in America: A Cultural History,” was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award.
