Professor Kevin Floyd is hosting an international conference this weekend at Kent State called, “MASCULINITIES BETWEEN THE NATIONAL AND THE TRANSNATIONAL, 1980 TO THE PRESENT.” Held from August 5-7, 2011, it is a continuation of the larger Humboldt Project that Floyd is developing with his counterpart at the Technische Universität Dresden, Professor Stefan Horlacher. Being a single track conference, I believe that it will be an intensive investigation of the issues raised by each of the presenters. You can download the conference program here. The conference is free and open to the public. See you there!
