A Panel Discussion and Breakfast

As male students decline in proportion in almost every field across US undergraduate and graduate/professional schools, little attention has been devoted to systematically exploring the causes of this trend—or, in an age in which education is vitally important, its implications for men’s roles in American society, culture, economics, and politics more generally.  This breakfast discussion, involving practitioners and a range of academics from NYU and elsewhere, will help launch such a sustained investigation of these vital themes.  The breakfast will include an announcement regarding forthcoming fellowships for scholars focusing on men's studies and related issues.
