Strong Men: A definitive guide to masculinity, manhood, and being a man
Thursday 19 November 2020
12:30pm - 1:30pm
To mark International Men's Day, “Alpha males”* Dr Matthew Smith and Dr Piers Worth from the University’s Centre for Positive Psychology** explore what it means to be a strong man in the 21st-century.
Drawing upon their own experiences, those of a range of positive male role models, along with key ideas from positive psychology, Matthew and Piers will help us all to better appreciate the challenges of modern manhood and suggest how a more nuanced understanding of ‘strengths’ is key to us living our best lives, whether we are male or female. Most of all, Piers and Matthew promise to inspire and entertain in equal measure.*
*Spoiler alert: this title, and the talk itself, may well be littered with a healthy dose of irony.
This event will be hosted via MS Teams.
