Description

Did you know that out of every ten students enrolled in colleges and universities in the United States, only four of them are men? Or that in the USA, approximately one in every 18 men is behind bars, on parole or being monitored by law enforcement agencies? And that among 15- to 24-year-olds, the suicide rate for males is almost six times greater than that of females? In colleges across the country, there are hundreds of programs on womens' rights, psychology and social issues, but virtually none concerning men and boys. This lack of understanding has contributed to many of the problems we face today in our society.

Leading scholars concerned about this problem will convene at Wagner College on Staten Island on April 7, 2010 to discuss our current condition, as well as introduce a new program on men's studies to be introduced at the university level. These eminent scholars, representing a wide range of academic disciplines including anthropology, education, history, medicine, politics and psychology will discuss a multi-disciplinary approach to solving this serious, growing problem with our men and boys.

You are invited to participate in this historic event - by visiting http://www.malestudies.org and registering for the Web broadcast, to take place from 10 am to 1 pm on April 7. As a participant of this live broadcast to Internet-connected registrants throughout the world, you can be part of an important initiative. You will also be invited to participate in the First International Conference on Male Studies, in October 2010.
