Emerging Masculinities: Evolving Beyond Toxic Conventions, Binaries and Paradigms - A Grounded Knowledge Panel

A Grounded Knowledge Panel™ (GKP) through the Center for Teaching & Learning mediated by Donna Mejia (Associate Professor, Department of Theatre & Dance and CTL Faculty Fellow) and Valerie Joseph (AEMES Mentoring Coordinator, Smith College).

This event will be a public conversation by a small group of people who have realistic, authentic and personal experience and understanding of a particular topic or question. While the Grounded Knowledge Panelists converse among themselves, the audience members (“witnesses” in the GKP model) observe the discussion, thus both groups — panelists and witnesses — bring a distinctive power and depth to the experience of speaking and listening.
