The Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs online session Thursday will deal with how aggrieved masculinity is playing an intersectional role in the politics of division.
A complex intersection of economic, political, environmental and social conditions are fuelling the rise of populism, political polarization, xenophobia and racism in the United States, amid leaders like Donald Trump, and other countries. Indeed, many predicted the rise of divisive politics and decreased social cohesion as economic inequality soared, with globalization and neoliberal politics further contributing to the increasing precarity of employment and earnings among the working and middle classes of western countries.
Thursday’s speaker will be Peter Kellett, an assistant professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Lethbridge and a research affiliate of the Prentice Institute for Global Population & Economy. His research program focuses on the impact of social inequality, gender and migration on the health of populations, with a particular focus on the role that masculinities and intersectional social inequalities play in men’s mental health and well-being.
Thursday’s session will begin at 10 a.m. on the YouTube Live link https://youtu.be/m1oD_nbXrhE.
