The Men's Project creates opportunities to address challenges faced by men at Dartmouth. Among other challenges, men are continually evaluating how to relate to the history of male domination and create a new paradigm of equality in a changing social landscape. In relation to this history, men today are finding new ways to engage with women and other men in the workplace and classroom as well as in social environments and intimate relationships. The Men's Project seeks to bring together resources to help men at Dartmouth face these challenges, as well as celebrate the diversity of experience within the male community here. This work will focus on circulating positive images of men and masculinity to the campus as well as critically addressing negative expressions of the masculine identity. Central to this exploration of masculinity is the recognition that explorations of gender must take place in tandem with explorations of race and ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation and other significant aspects of individual and cultural identity.
The Center for Gender and Student Engagement is pleased to announce our first Men's Project Fellow: Fermin Liu Ku!
During the interim, Fermin will be working with two organizations:
Through his work with these two agencies, both located in the Boston Cambridge area, Fermin hopes to broaden his understanding of what types of work social service based non-profits do and how he can incorporate these goals into his academics here at Dartmouth College. Because his role at Youth on Fire will be primarily individual case work, and his role at the Gay Men's Domestic Violence Project will be larger scale social media efforts, Fermin will get a diverse education in addition to being able to assist in communities for which he feels passionately about.
The Center for Gender and Student Engagement hopes to offer an interim fellowship each year, for more information contact CGSE Director, Jessica Jennrich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
