UNI Calendar of Events

Exhibits, Films and Lectures Calendar

Monday, April 27, 2015 - 6:30 pm

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Women's and Gender Studies and Wellness and Recreation Services will host a screening and discussion of "The Mask You Live In." This documentary, from the makers of "Miss Representation," follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.


Following the 90-minute film, Mark Rowe-Barth, Alan Heisterkamp and Michael Fleming will lead a discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. Please note this film contains content that may not be suitable to children under 16.

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 - 3:15 pm

Xavi Escandell, associate professor of sociology, will present "Gender Gaps in Educational Outcomes Among Children of New Migrants: The Role of Social Integration from a Comparative Perspective."

The UNI College of Education will sponser a lecture featuring Jonathan Kozol, a known author on the experiences of children living in impoverished communities. He will share strategies for what we can do in classrooms and beyond to support the nation's poorest children. This event is in conjunction with the Education Summit being held May 1, 2015.
