Room 1, CES | Alta


 General objective

To promote a space of dialogue, provocation and reflection on different performances of masculinities staged in everyday experiences, considering their different effects.

Specific objectives
- Promote a space of conversation about masculinities.
- Produce understandings about the participants' perception of "being a man", "masculinity", etc .;

- To motivate participants to produce some textual reflections on the theme with proposals of personal/social changes.

The seminar will conclude with the presentation of the book "De guri a cabra-macho: Masculinidades no Brasil" ((Lamparina/CNPq) | Eds: Márcio Caetano and Paulo Melgaço da Silva Junior.
