Fatherhood is taking it in the chops these days, and fanatics use the term “patriarchy” as a synonym for oppression. Against all that is this:
Thursday 11 October – Saturday 13 October
Trinity International University, Deerfield, Illinois
I can hardly believe that the organizers were brave enough to give this conference the title “Patriarchy.” Take that, you foes of fatherhood! Doesn’t it give you a thrill? But this isn’t going to be a chest-thumping festival. Naturally, distortions of manhood and fatherhood will be discussed too.
Almost forgot to mention that along with fourteen other speakers, I’ll be giving one of the talks, on “What Makes Men Men.”
